It was commercially available. I sold it briefly myself before I passed all the molding and casting over to Federation Models. It wasn't on the market for long though.....probably 2 to 3 years I'd guess. The master is still around, currently in Del's hands, but it has a lot of cleanup to do to get it back into fighting shape to be remolded so I don't know when he'll get to it. The one I'm building now is one of the castings Tracy did; my original casting I pulled for myself (the one the boxart was based on) actually went to Dennis from Starcrafts as a gift.Markus wrote: ↑Tue May 07, 2019 6:12 pmThis is looking really good! The additional panels really bring out the sense of scale, making it look like a properly large starship. What's the history behind the base model kit? Was it commercially produced at some point, or was it a limited private party thing?
Thanks! Yes, there are a few more parts to add that I'll need to scratchbuild. The kit provided wingtip disruptors I originally built aren't accurate (they're round when they should be rounded off rectangular/capsule shaped) so those will need to be redone, and then I have the center disruptor gun to rebuild and the two rounded blister guns on the tops of the wings. I pulled out my 1/144 scale B-29 bomber model to see if those blister pods would work, and it was JUUUST a little too large for that area. Shoot. Gonna poor-man-lathe it with some carving foam and a drill I guess. And the last part I know I'm adding is the minigun-looking disruptor on the bottom center of the cobra head pod.
