Re: Discovery Enterprise **SPOILER** image heavy

This really makes me angry. It wasn’t enough that everything else that made Trek what it is was thrown out the window, that the Klingons got a really needless re-design, but now they also have to — in a final flip of the middle finger to Trekkies — re-design one of sci-fi’s (indeed, even pop culture...

Re: Bringing back the Wants List

For me, it would have to be:

• 1:537 USS Defiant (DS9, not Constitution-class)
• 1:537 USS Voyager
• 1:537 USS Excelsior*
• 1:537 Klingon BoP (STIII-sized)

*And yes, I'm well aware this would be a f*cking massive kit. :mrgreen:

Re: OTB: AMT/R2 1:537 USS Reliant (another one)

Sorry that I haven't been updating this thread (or being active in other ones), chaps ... RL stuff is happening, and taking time away from my build :( All the same, I hope that in the coming couple of weeks, I'll be able to add a new update. So, I'm not MIA, just RL getting in my way ... don't cull ...

Re: Building a 1:350 Enterprise Refit - I need some advise on clear parts

As far as the main deflector, how does one add the "clouded" affect so it doesn't look painted and acts more diffused? I can't really speak to the turboshafts ... but as far as the navigational deflector goes, the simplest way is to lightly sand the backside of it (which is to say, not th...

Re: 1/1400 AMT Enterprise-C (So it begins)

I only got one section done before my hand gave out from holding the Dremel. (If any one knows of a smaller handpiece, lemme know as I could certainly use it instead of that five pound Dremel!) Get yourself a flex shaft attachment like the one in this video:

Re: Oberth Cutaway

This poster gets away with it because it upsizes it, with a length of 148.77 m. If we're honest, those extra 28.77 metres really wouldn't make a difference. Like you said, there's absolutely no way turbolifts, their shafts, and their mechanisms could fit in those nacelle pylons. The Oberth -class w...

Re: Dominion v Borg

Haha, you're not wrong! You'd think the Founders would have engineered things such that this drug was delivered subdermally, similar to contraceptive implants.

Re: Clear resin casting recommendation

I got the idea of using Oomoo from a couple of YouTube vids by Kenny Conklin at SciFiantasy, where he was using it to cast a solid (not clear) part for the Vor'Cha -class cruiser. He made it look actually pretty simple, so I thought it would be a good starting point for clear parts. But, like I said...
