Dusting off this project that's been dormant for almost 2 years:

Hope to get it launched before the end of the Group Build.

This is well advanced, good!
I do not build sci-fi and I wonder: when do you decide the model is complete? (as this is not our logic)... ;)

I wonder: when do you decide the model is complete?

For this project, I wanted to get it done, so I put any extra parts back in the spares box, made some compromises on adding more detail, but also revamped the details I still needed to add.  Otherwise, I would probably have dithered and dawdled until the end of the GB, or put this back in the box to finish "someday." 

I'm thinking right now, as is, she's about 90% done.  Next, I'm going to start painting prior to final assembly.

For building subjects actually known as existing subjects (like an NCC-1701 Enterprise or X-Wing), it's finished when the model looks as close as I want to the original (which may or may not be before, as or after the parts in the box run out! :D ).

For subjects that I have created from my own imagination, the build stops when the model meets what my imagination thinks it should look like.

Same as when I'm building aircraft or tank models. If it's a real thing, the model stops when it looks as much like the real thing as I want it to. If it's a made up aircraft or tank, it stops when it looks like my head thinks it should look.
