Being that the kit is gonna be 24cm long, Gonna trial it hollow as it's larger than most of my offerings. Bit nervous as I printed the Akira hollow and it turned into an expensive undertaking, so with larger parts, gonna try on the Achilles. I'm useless with electronics, but hoping to see some lit kits after launch :)

It's the biggest kit I've done thus far, by far lol.

Hence why I'm cramming in all the details ha!

Small update on some hull plating :)

It's getting there slowly, and hopefully is within touching distance of being completed :D Need to see if I can repair the nacelles, else will rebuild as for some reason the printer hated them! So will have a look. But shouldn't take much of the imagination now to see how it'll look finished - although there is still more detail to add :)

The ship is hollow with exception of the Nacelle Pylons, it'd be too thin to print with strength to cast. SO if you do want to light the nacelles which you'll need to create a cavity in same way you light up the ERTL Enterprise-D Model Nacelle. Hope okay.


I'm hoping to be in a print position by the end of April :) So will start taking orders in May once I have it printed and ready to start casting. It's the biggest kit I've done, so may do a limited run at first to judge demand. If support for the kit is steady, It'll just be offered until the moulds become tired and unusable :)

lol, cheers guys. It's coming together really well. Thought I'd start the task of cutting windows into the hull:

Also did some work around the engineering hull and nacelle pylons :) I'm hoping at my current rate and if there are no major issues it'l be ready to print by the end of the month :D

So if its going to be hollow, can I use some detailing kits to make some rec room or arboretum even if I only use decals inside?
