USS Enterprise Constitution Class

Introduction: USS Enterprise Constitution Class

About: Engineering student and Lansing Community College Member of the FIRST robotics team: Team STAR-TREC aka team 4294.

This is my very first instructable: As a student in mechanical engineering I have always been interested in the show Star Trek, so I decided to create my very own star ship. I used online blueprints to help remain accurate, though I did make a few personal modifications as to give the older ship a more sleek design. 
Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking!
