It's one reason why I only do one model at a time. I much prefer to give something my all, and right now, with my mood- I can only gve it a lukewarm.

But for you Xen- I will try. It helps that my new (and working) air compressor arrived sooner than expected. I will have something to show what I shall be building by the 10th of March. So I'm in.

So starting in June I can do, coming off the noob/OOB contest. Mine is the 1/350 TOS Enterpires with PL upgrade kits. So it's lit but it's Also all OOB. ;) Is it supposed to be something New in box or a long stalled project?

Something you have yet to start (however long it's been in your possession), so folks see a "before, during and after" in your WIP thread.

I'm torn. I want to do both, but have to be realistic about it. I do have a Voyager kit that's been collecting dust for a while- the reason being that I really hate the proportions of the nacelles on the ship- it lacks a balance. I really want to build it with new nacelles and static pylons. Everything else would be the same- well, except for that ugle greebley sensor platform on the top forward section of the hull.

Ya- maybe I'll do that. Make nacelles that are a larger cross between Voyagers and the E-D's... No small task there, and pylons more like the concept model of Voyager, except pointing up instead of down.

I'm afraid I have to pull out. After my last hemming and hawwing and final commitment, I've been involved in a rear end collision, and expenses and such are making things difficult to do a proper job on a model.

My apologies Xen. :shock:

No need for apologies. This is an informal tally, to see who wants what. "RL" comes first. ;)

I'd like to try the lighting. I've got a 1/537 special edition enterprise refit begging for lighting upgrades and such. I have started however sanding the nasty panels off of her. Would I be able to use it?

I would happily jump in to both, although I voted for kitbash rather the OOB. Of course, with OOB I can spend more time painting and less time faffing, so we'll see...
