Building Techniques:
This MOC is for experienced builders and ship enthusiasts who are looking for a highly detailed shelf model. 
The main body consists of a sturdy inner core, with modular hull sections attached in SNOT technique to the sides. 
The superstructure switches between building directions to create a compact yet detailed design and maintaining the plank look.
