2500 Ent-D

Postby mophius » Fri Oct 27, 2017 9:37 pm

Was thinking about smuggling* this one home soon to start work on it. I saw on FedMod site that there is a battlehead you can buy to go on the engineering hull so you have the separate saucer and secondary.
My question to you is....
What about the join on the saucer. Is there a piece you can buy to go on the saucer for when it is separated?

You're correct, there's a cobraneck battlehead, but there is no "mate" piece that goes on the bottom of the saucer :/

I thought of trying to mold a mate of the battlehead but I have to think it through some more

I've just finished off some variations of the D and these 3D views might help you. Ignore the square holes on the joined sections, they're for the recessed magnets.

Also ignore the saucer deflector and Voyager Aeroshuttle, Life Boats and RCS thrusters.

If you want some top down pics of the joined sections please ask.

Cheers

I would love to see removable saucer conversion parts for the Ertl model. Not so breathtakingly expensive.

Wanna play guinea pig? It's about $15 to print in FUD.

Looks good. Can I order it later on tonight.
I am in UK but there they print in Europe in the Netherlands, I believe.
It should take about a week before I see it.
