1/1400 Shuttles

Hey all! Can anyone recomend some 1/1400 scale shuttles? Ive done some looking on shapeways and found Armadillo Minatures. He has some in 1/350 that look great and he says he can rescale to whatever you want. Has anyone tried these? https://www.shapeways.com/product/RDR95WVQ2/federation-shuttle-gali...

Re: Dingbat's Ambassador

Back at it! Argh.....that deflector dish... 20180413_191248.jpg I was going to use slow drying epoxy to level out the sink marks, but thought that it might not be viscous enough to level off before it set. Instead I tried some future and planned on building it up in stages. It still isnt quite done,...

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

She's looking mighty fine Msgt! That strobe in the aft is going to look great. With my own Im thinking of wiring the light on the underside below the 3rd shuttlebay to strobe (Im using the alternate bottom ala Excalibur/Zhukov) and adding port/stbd. fibers on the extreme aft edge. @ ProfArturo: Dont...

Re: Dingbat's Ambassador

Hey Msgt- Thanks! For the engines, are you going to use SMDs? For the impulse engines Im planning on a single red 3mm led in a light box. I have it all made up on the little incert that pops into the secondary hull. After seeing how you did yours in a more conical shape, I may test light the neck to...

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

Funny you mention building an Apollo calss with the leftovers; I bought a second kit a while back for just that purpose! I think it may be my best option to have a Nebula style ship (my favorite) without dropping the coin on DLM's kit for the Galaxy. Someone on here has a cool conversion of one. ......
