Description of the Model:
After been waiting like 6 months for someone to do the Dominion Battleship more detailed I see that it was time to begin my modeler life, so i buyed 3ds max 4 and begun to make some experiments and after 2 days of work I finished the model.
The mesh contains about 1800 polygons. The textures are based on a Star Trek: The Magazine article featuring detailed schematic renderings of Dominion vessels.
I've dimensioned the model to 1500 meters wide compared to the Sovereign. I had originally scaled this vessel to 1350 meters, but review narrative and VFX evidence of my videotape of the DS9 episode, Valiant indicates a slightly larger vessel. In either case, the Jem'Hadar Battleship dwarfs every Federation starship in Starfleet's order of Battle.
I used 3d studio Max to finalize the mesh and converted it to SOD format using the Max 4 plugin.

In 2374, the Federation heavy escort Valiant, under the command of Starfleet Cadet Tim Watters, attempted to attack and destroy a massive Dominion Capital ship. Jake Sisko, who, through an odd set of circumstances found himself aboard this ship crewed by raw cadets behind enemy lines, commented that this Jem'Hadar Battleship was "twice as big" as a Galaxy Class Explorer. This makes the Dominion Battleship at least eight times as massive as the Enterprise D and bigger and more massive than a Romulan D'Deridex Class Warbird. Jem'Hadar Super Battleships vessels employ ion impulse propulsion, ventral impellers and polaron beam weapons. Despite their power, they are slower at warp and less agile at impulse than their Federation counterparts. (The same, unfortunately cannot be said for the very-agile-at-impulse Jem'Hadar Attack fighters.)
The Valiant's attack failed and the vessel was destroyed with only three survivors.
In combat strength, the Dominion Battleship is, by itself, at least 50 percent more powerful than a Negh'Var Battleship or a Sovereign Class Dreadnought. The Dominion Battleship also carries a wing (perhaps as many as 36) fully-equipped Jem-Hadar Attack fighters. In all, these fighters more than double the offensive punch of the Dominion Battleship. Starfleet Intelligence recommends that no Federation commander under any circumstances should attempt to attack this ship without additional fire support.
Starfleet is uncertain as to how many of these vessels exist in the Dominion Order of Battle. Section 31 estimates that there are at least 25 of these Battleships in the Jem'Hadar inventory. Starfleet Command has given these vessels high target priority, but only when adequate firepower can be brought to bear against them.
