Starship inspired by "The Expanse" SF novel (J. Corey). The giant NAUVOO spaceship is under construction to be a "moving world" acting as a long term colony travelling to nearest star system. The hollow structure and rotation create artificial gravity. 10 000 people will live (and die !) inside. Duration of the journey : several centuries...
About this creation
























First steps of building : the frame
Détails of the structure to obtain circle shaped frame. The 1/2 stud assembly allows to create small angle assembly => 12 such patterns are needed to close the circular frame.
12 frames are perfect for further work ! Very rigid ! photos display 13 frames but I reduced to 12

---------------------------
step II
the frame is completed; Final structure was however modified including only 12 frames, slightly reduced in diameter. better for symetry.
Now the "skin" can be placed Inside and outside. Under Progress !!
