I sure can, and cast the entire kit in opaque resin.

The molds are completed. In go the wires for lighting and brass tubing for strength.

Silicone molds with the wires and brass tubing placed inside before casting. Tiny wires perfect for lighting.

The Orvile is a good looking ship at least.

Holy shite, dude! That's just fabulous!!!

I know it doesn't pay the bills, but man, if I had the cash to blow, I'd be getting one (for what that sentiment is worth).

I would jump on a sacred scale offering. Lighting not required.

Long time lurker here. That's what I've read on some modeling pages on Facebook, resin-kits getting C&D everywhere, because of Fox and CBS. Someone told me to buy Starcrafts kits while they are still available (Federationmodels has most of them out of order atm). Can someone shed some light on this situation and if the Orville 1/1000 scale kit could still happen?

Great looking model. I would be happy to pay $170 to get my hands on one.
