Default Star Trek - Runabout

Hi everybody! Sorry I've been gone for years. Life keeps getting in the way. Speaking of that, I decided that it was time to get back into lightwave and make some stuff. Going to dust off the ol' modeling skills and see if I have what it takes to make some stuff that is worth selling online. For now though, I'm just going to practice again by doing stuff I always enjoyed doing...Star Trek models!

So here goes...
First model in years. Hopefully posting on here I will hold myself accountable and actually make some progress. I still have a bunch of ancient WIPs on here I need to finish too lol.

Thanks! Its good to be back. So I am slowly adding some details, starting from the top and working my way down.
Reference materials that I have found online aren't super great. Found a bunch of inaccurate blueprints and some lower resolution pics of the studio model. I figure I am probably aiming for 75% accuracy with this one. But if anybody has some higher resolution images of the model that might not be public, I would love to talk to you about them! Here's what I got today so far:

Thanks guys! This is really getting me back into lightwave groove. Here's some more updates:
worked on the panel lines on the front part thingy, also reshaped the front windows because the corners were too sharp, after reviewing some reference pics I found they were a lot more rounded than i had them.
