Re: hello

Welcome aboard! I like your positivity and fresher perspective from a younger fan. I feel television is going through a Renaissance with quality shows both in storytelling and production quality. I know TOS is a hard-sell to a modern audience, given that it was produced in the 60's with a fairly low...

Re: USS Odyssey WIP

Are you going to embed a Jem'Hadar fighter in the neck?

Re: 50x50=2500, 8 Light (pic heavy)

Here's a picture showing the progression of the computer wall: ComputerWall.jpg Initially the wall is equally wavy up & down. It should really be 2 panels up then a drop down. So I cut out the old panels and put in new double panels which I reinforced with sprue on the back end. Then filled the gaps...

Re: 50x50=2500, 8 Light (pic heavy)

While I don't plan to go as far as here , I will need to add some additional building area to the model for lighting - probably a couple of floors on the command tower rather than all the way to the moon's surface. I am considering cutting off the rounded parts of the Main Mission and gluing them to...

Re: Museum of Military History

Well the Orlando/Kissimmee area has plenty of things to see/do, such as Disney Parks, Universal Studios, Sea World, sports arenas, Downtown Disney (which has a Lego store my wife/son like to visit), dinner theaters, etc. It can be very tourist-y. We also went to Old Town (shops, rides, etc.) and Med...

Re: U.S.S. Jupp.

The design is growing on me - seems to be a practical/feasible configuration. Clever use of 1 of these kits!

Re: Do you want a Group Build or Contest?

While I like contests to nudge people into activity and stretch their abilities outside their comfort zone, I have another additional suggestion. An annual contest with no prizes (just pride on the line here and/or group appreciation) where all models completed in the calendar year are automatically...

Museum of Military History

The wife, son & I went to Kissimmee this past weekend and visited the Museum of Military History (website here ). It had artifacts and models ranging from the Civil War through recent American history. Even thought they aren't Star Trek models, I thought I'd snap a few pictures of some of the models...

Re: USS Odyssey WIP

How did you make the burn marks? Inquiring minds would like to know. Soldering iron? Drilling? Sawing?

Re: Current project USS Centaur

Most modelers encounter this at 1 time or another. I'd depict it visually for the Centaur like this: centaur_stand.jpg Here you have the stand applying a force at approximately the center of mass of the model. However, gravity is acting on every part of the model, which will cause the sides, front a...
