I'm afraid that multiplying my repair estimates by any factor won't do much good in these situations.

This is starting to look good, Moongrim. Can't wait to see further progress on this!

Looking great! I want to do one of these, as well. My currently plan, tho, is to use standard nacelles, one of which will come from one of the 1/1000 scale Heavy Fire Destroyer conversion kits I ordered.

A shame that MM is so unreliable, tho. I had originally thought to purchase the same secondary hull set you used. Instead, I plan to do some bashing, puttying, sanding, puttying, lather, rinse, repeat, etc... I'd have ordered quite a few of his pieces/parts.

Another thing I intended to do was to add megaphasers to the outboard warp nacelle/pylon area. It's a mega-kickbutt ship, so needs super, uber firepower!

I had thought about adding megaphasers there too. Ala- Ingram class. But I didn't want to get TOO overboard... :lol:

To be fair- MM did get me the secondary hull(s), just as close to the limit Paypal would've let me go before filing a refund deadline. The biggest challenge was mating the secondary hull parts up properly to insure alignment of the grooves.

Say, you wouldn't happen to have an extra set if those Balson secondary hull parts, would you? :D
