I’m not sure on the amount of Pepakura Star Wars ships. This Nebulon B is from plans I drew up by hand.

Millennium Falsehood does have a Pepakura Nebulon b in 1:270 though.

Slow and steady progress.

Great stuff!

 

I was always bemused in the old x-wing games when I saw flights of TIE fighters launching from a Nebulon B.  According to Wookie, it seems like I'm not the only one:

 

"There is some dispute among fans on the claimed fighter capacity of the Nebulon-B. Computer games and the deck-plans in The Far Orbit Project show a hangar in the forward hull, with a launch aperture in the starboard flank, but there seems to be no such opening on the model used in the movies. Other depictions in the computer games show starfighters docking and launching via an opening in the thin connection between the superstructure and drive bay.

 

However, the Rebel Alliance Sourcebook, seemingly the source which first introduced the Nebulon-B's starfighter capability, makes no mention of internal hangars. The text simply says that: "The escort frigate has the capacity to carry up to two squadrons of starfighters into battle. In addition, the ship has docking fixtures to accommodate ships of up to medium freighter size" (p. 60). Since The Empire Strikes Back shows the "docking fixtures" to be external hardpoints on the spar between the prow superstructure and engines, it is possible that the fighters could also be carried on a rack along the spar, in the manner of Carrack-class cruisers, assault frigates, and FarStar."

 

Somehow I doubt an external rack would be able to carry it's suggested full complement of 24 TIE's, plus landing/boarding shuttles though...
