This is going to be an amazing build. Are there decals for the HMS Bounty? A.. are you christening her Bounty, anyway if there aren't? :lol:

Is there anything different in this release compared to the last one?

Yes there is, the landing gear is made of diecast metal.

And no, no "Bounty" decals for this one I'm afraid.

If you are doing a landed version the Vulcan landing pad would be a good diorama.

Any suggestions for a source?

The end of STII is not that revealing. The start of ST IX for screen shots. They don't show a lot.

Google image search is a thing. I was able to pull up some good reference pictures on my random search this morning, but it is easy and you all should be able to use it on your own without my hand to guide you.

Actually I was fishing for recommendations for screen shots.

As the STIII was a night time landing. Still I should come up with something suggesting either the night time with loads of landing/navigation lights. Or something akin to Prince Saud Airfield in Saudi Arabia.

I'm in planning mode at this point. I will continue work on this one AFTER I've completed the 50th Anniversary Enterprise Preview.

Oh, my bad, didn't know you meant you would be pulling screenshots yourself. I didn't find a lot of the front of the BoP when it was landing in ST:III like when all the spotlights were on it. Most of what I got from google was from ST:VI and very little from III for some weird reason.
