This is my scratchbuilt Daedalus-class Federation Starship. It is approximately 1/175 scale, or 34-inches long.

It began as loose PVC pipes, scraps of wood and plastic bits from other kits.

The (non canon) deflector dish is the remains of a plastic wine glass, while the domes on the front of the engine nacelles are frosted two-inch gumball machine prize containers. Christmas ornaments painted red-gold, and detailed with pinstripe are contained within them.
