Right you are Tersal. That launch escape rocket has quite a story on its own. I also build flying model rockets when not building plastic kits. Here is my Little Joe II I built last Summer. For those that don’t know, the Little Joe II was the test rocket built specifically to test the launch escape system for the Apollo program leading up to the Saturn V.

Yes, you certainly may use my pics, I'd be honored!

Yes, I've seen your ships on Shapeways and have several on my wish list. I'm a huge B5 fan and hope to get many of them as well.

Wow, that's an amazing collection you have there! That Shadow ship is magnificent![/quote]

Thank You for letting me use them. I can either grab them from your Flickr or if you've got the time to email them over my address is marcnoonan@hotmail.com.

The Shadow Battlecrab is my favourite and it's the Warp model and just about works in 1/2500 as the smallest one that was in the Mars Dome. They do come up on Ebay occasionally or there's another version by Bad-Azz or Howling Wolf available from JT-Graphics. They also have the Vorlon Dreadnought which is spot on for 1/2500 too. :D

So RL has been trying it's best to sideline me but I was finally able to finish up my 3D printed NX-01 Enterprise refit. The decals are a mix from MEATLOAFr and some extras I had laying around.

That is a mighty fine ship. I will have to get one at some point.
You have detailed it very nicely indeed. What was your basecoat?
There is no dark side of the moon really, matter of fact its all dark.

Thanks mophius :) This one had been on the back burner for a bit but if I recall correctly I think I used Testors Flat Light Aircraft Gray from a rattle can. If I had to do it again I think I'd use a bit darker gray, but all in all I'm happy with it.

Here is a nice comparison with the original NX-01.
