Hi Feek- this work is unparalled. Truly awesome. Two questions about resources. Did you blueprint what you built before construction and if so, will the plans be made publicly available? And do you know if anyone has blueprinted the big movable unit that sat to the right of the core in the first season engineering room? The one Finney hid in?

Thank you for your kind words. Yes I did draw the plans and have blueprints for every detail of the engine room. I will make the complete set of plans available. I also have the movable unit drawn out and will it will also be available with the engine room plan set.

Thank you, Feek. That will be most generous. I am interested in trying out some ideas I've had for awhile on locations (and the function of certain elements) for that set within the "real" ship. So your plans will definitely help that process along.
