Printing a bigger ship would be a good way to go, but the solution I adopted was to paint a double size ship on 3mm hardboard, with my own colour scheme as I was using leftover paint. So I have corridors in "mango crush" (a sort of orange), grey rooms with magnolia walls and engines, light green sensors and dark blue space; it all works rather well. I'm particularly proud of the dappled white paint effect I used for the engines' exhaust, and will see if I can find a way to upload a photo.
Mattias' board is going to work for me, but I look forward to seeing yours.
