The damn kragle stabbed me in the back again. Almost totally hard. I don't know if the bit of jelly I got out will even hold.

Epoxy might do the whole job after all.

When I get around to doing mine, I plan to pin the wings.

The connection is solid, it will briefly stay in place without glue if well fitted. I don't recommend pinning, but if that floats your boat.

ONWARD!

Against all expectations the gloppy goop actually held. (My wife said that: "Going hard in the bottle, isn't that what CA is is for?" I replied that just selling little blocks of acrylic would be a great time saver.)

And it is lunch day with my son. No more modeling today.

something occurred to me while i was having a gander at your latest pics. could those wing sections 'pivot', bop style, at various positions to designate whether it was in attack, cruise mode or whatever [it's probably too big to land, maybe, hence the 'whatever'].

p.s. i misread what you said. i thought you said it was cold. anyway, i wish you better tesral! :vulcan:

That would be a question for the designer. I personally am not fond of mighty morphin' Starships. Why make it more complicated?

Both, it is cold, well below freezing, and I have one.

I had considered it once upon a time when I was designing her but thought better of it. She'd be to big for any sort of movement of the wings to be practical.

Good call, Roguewolf- moving parts on a Starship is the height of stupidity,- the the KBOP being the ONLY exception!
