Re: TOS NCC-1701 1/1000 Polar Lights

Scott, That is ALOT of wire for so small a scale! But you are doing an awesome job of this! Side note: I noticed the "R" on the open saucer; is that for "red light"? If so, I like that; it reminds me of me. I do that all the time - make notes to myself so I put the right pieces where they should go....

Re: 1/48 B-24D Liberator

I bet he was proud to receive it. Really awesome job Steve. Shawn Thanks Shawn, he was really happy and, now, its all he talks to me about - that and when will I build him another plane?! :lol: Hi Steve. Just went back through and re-read the build thread and it's fine work. I'd definitely be proud...

Re: TOS NCC-1701 1/1000 Polar Lights

Scott, no blarney here - you have some of the best lighting ideas I've seen! I have always wondered how I was going to get that "same depth" for the non-lighted windows and, boom, there you have a solution! Thanks for sharing. Have you tested it yet? I still have to go back and absorb what you wrote...

Re: TOS NCC-1701 1/1000 Polar Lights

This kit comes with several options for decals. This has the unexpected benefit of making it easier to locate windows. While the decals on the neck needed no replacements, the emblem on the secondary hull clearly was needed later. However, with two sets of decals for the secondary hull (minor diffe...

Re: TOS NCC-1701 1/1000 Polar Lights

Steve, I don't believe I have seen work done with copper foil tape. Any references? The struts don't have to support very much weight, so a little plastic removal should be OK. As for the seams, I bounce between PPP and Vallejo plastic putty. I have somewhat reclaimed by hobby area downstairs and h...

Re: TOS NCC-1701 1/1000 Polar Lights

Scott, interesting that you would choose to light this scale; I don't think I have ever seen one of this scale lit (lighted?) before. Noice! So, how do you plan to hide the seams? Perfect Plastic Putty (PPP)? Also, and just a suggestion, rather than cut a groove in the strut for the wire, have you t...

Re: Bandai Master Grade Wing Zero Custom

Greg, this looks fantastic! You certainly have done the model justice! Just how many of these have you built over the years? You certainly have the skills. I did go look in my model closet and found that I have a W-Gundam Zero Custom! It is the HG 1/144 scale model kit and is, as yet, unassembled. B...
