Excellent job!!!!-Your ship has great detail!!!! I know what your mean about the economical reasons-dang the legos are too expensive even by bulk. Make it your goal to finish the other half and when u get a chance comment on my 2 meter long TITANIC!
That thing'll never float! Very nicely done, even though it's only half it's still huge and incredibly detailed. Each room is lovingly rendered and even the hull is sculpted expertly. When you get more pieces you should make the other half too, but even as is it's a great build.
