There's no place I can be ... Since I found ...
I recently finished watching the first (and only) season of Firefly again and was curious as to what the cast was up to. One thing led to another and somehow I went from IMDB to Google to a site that had some Lightwave tutorials on how to build the Serenity. These tutorials are great reference on all the parts of the ship, but I use 3DS Max for my 3D work, and Max doesn't like Booleans too much. Frankly I don't either, they make for a messy mesh. I bring this up because the guy who made the tutorials tends to use Booleans for every other step.
So I'm gradually working my way through the tuts building one section at a time, but it's taking a while due to not taking the shortcuts of Boolean. And since I'm building this thing from the ground up I'm making a few modifications along the way. You diehard fans out there may be able to spot the differences, but I make the changes outta love and the belief that they make for a better ship.

Ok, so a couple weeks back I saw a post with this project on it. I'm not really a cross-stitch person, but this was too cool to pass up. I ended making it at about half scale since I couldn't find the right gauge fabric, I made a few other changes as well. Here it is all finished, now I just have to figure out how to frame it.
And if any of you feel inspired, here's a link where you can find the plans to make your own.
Feb. 02 - I forgot to post the completed project so here it is. I ended up buying a handheld matte cutter and mounted this along with another piece I had (non-cross stitch).
