PL TOS Romulan Bird of Prey

Postby Kratok » Sun Dec 17, 2017 1:01 am

I had hoped to add this to Trekriffic's awesome build thread of this model, but the images have been lost. Terrible shame, as that was a truly awe-inspiring build.

Just an informational post, to anyone interested.

The local Hobby Lobby had this kit on clearance today for $10. It was in the clearance area at the back left corner of our store, not in the model section.

Ten bucks....
Even though I just sold off the last of my 1:1000 kits, at that price I HAD to buy this. If nothing else, it will allow me to experiment a bit with lighting a model.

It is a disease. It really and truly is.....

NIce! Best deal I found was a couple months back when I picked up a TOS-E w/Botany Bay, Reliant, and the same TOS RBoP for $12/each, IIRC. Haven’t seen any of those kits at the clearance section since.

Thankfully, there doesn’t seem to be a cure for this disease!

Thanks for the compliment Kratok and my build thread is still here on the forum.
Here's a link to it:
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=3322&hilit=Romulan

I've seen the RBOP kit on clearance at Hobby Lobby too. Almost tempted to get another one myself.
Would make a good starting point for a scratch bash.

Well that is bizarre....

I searched for this thread before posting, found it was still here, but also that every one of the image links was broken. Yet, today, here they are.

Which is GREAT, because it truly was an outstanding and inspirational build. Thanks for prompting me to take another look.

Hmmm... Ahah! I know! The model may have been cloaked!

Thanks again for the compliments Kratok. I'll be following your build closely.
