1000 scale Orville from Starcraft Models

Post by Starcraft Models » Sat Jul 07, 2018 1:02 pm

I would like to introduce my latest kit; the 1000 scale Orville and it's 13.5" long. This kit is designed to be lighted. the primary hull is two pieces that are hollowed out. They are cast in clear for easy lighting. The rings are solid, however they have trenched cut out for lights. There are clear detailed covers that fit easily over the trenches. All the rings come pre- wired with the wire cast inside the resin. The middle ring is long and thin, so I also cast a brass tube inside to prevent sagging. The lower ring is also pre-wired for the clear bussard collectors. The shutlle bay may be built opened or closed, there is a separate door piece. Since the walls ans ceiling are clear, the light form the hull will create back lighting to the shuttle bay. I even created wallpaper decals for the shuttle walls to add a realistic lighted shuttle bay! I am thinking about making a shuttle, but are that scale it would be TINY. It would only be .096" by .302" that's 5/16".

This was one of the most challenging kits I've ever made, all those complex curves. I will need to ask $170.00

that is honestly a bargin for the Orville -
I have some experience trying to make Rotor-Molded and Vacu-form 127-sphere and concatenated 129"bucky-zwicky-zermelo",
that would have to have been one tricky dang model to have made
Well done star craft models, this is one of your most technically advanced models ever,
and it looks fantastic.

Damn nice, Dennis!

Would you consider casting them w/o the wiring for those who don't want to light their models?
