Re: Tribble troubles...

Are those Tribbles in scale with your Republic? They would be HUUUUUGE! Well, no... I figured the 18 inch kit would be a a good reference for their sizes. :roll: ... on the other hand, when pink ones start to show up, those might actually be in scale with the Republic. http://www.shawcomputing.net/...

Re: Galileo 2.0

Hmmm... I must have deleted this reply when I added in the rest of the post earlier. The decal look spot on.
