Does anyone know if anyone sells a 1/1400 scale Reliant or Refit bridge replacement? I need it for a kitbash ;)

not that I'm aware of. Do you have a 1400 kit you can make a quick push mold off of? Otherwise I'd say contact starcrafts and see if he has a seconds hull he can send you maybe...

Excellent idea :) I don't have a kit but I'll contact Starcrafts and see if he has any dud saucers with a good bridge module.

Are you still looking for a Reliant bridge? I have one that was sawed off from my Soyuz conversion. It's yours if you need it.

wow, you sawed it off? You're a more delicate man than I.....I just slapped a drum sander on the dremel and Thanos-snapped the whole darn thing....

Le sigh... someday my missing Dremel tool will be found. It is still packed away in a mystery box from my last move.

Carefully removed bits can be reused.

Oh, lord so I understand that. I have a few missing items in that same situation. Including an unbuilt Macro Trek Galor in the original box. I had it before the move.....now it's up and gone....

I sawed off the bridge module with a jeweler's saw, partly to keep the resin dust down, partly because I like to hoard random parts, and mostly because I also couldn't find my Dremel tool at the time.

Top tip: Buying a new Dremel tool will guarantee that you find your old one ten minutes after the return window for the new one expires.

I have three or four going back to 1977. The Stylus is my favorite.
