Re: Alliance Constellation (Picture Heavy)

I'd try looking at R/C vehicle weights or maybe fishing lure weights. The R/C usually come with an adhesive backer, which holds pretty well to most surfaces. Just a thought. The model train guys like to mix tungsten powder with a little putty to get maximum tractive effort out of their locomotives.

I wouldn't fill them on an Intrepid class. Voyager had worse body gaps than a salvage yard Chevette.

Just 'cause you're not lookin' to start a fight, doesn't mean you shouldn't be ready to end one.

WSF is also where sandpaper goes to die an dishonorable death. It is nylon, so it's *very* difficult to sand....


I've had molded nylon laugh at diamond abrasive bits in a moto-tool.

Re: Opinions on raised grid lines: sand or leave?

If you're doing wallpaper decals, you'll definitely want to get rid of the raised lines. I wish they'd give us nice fine engraved lines, but they prefer to give us border walls, and trenches you could fly a snub fighter through. To be honest, at this scale, the grid lines wouldn't even be visible. B...

As cool as this is, I don't think I'd be able to resist turning it into the X-1 from Venture Brothers, if I had one.

This threat will be met with the Federations Task Force GB, comprised of the starships Spengler, Stantz, and Venkman. The USS Zedmore will be joining them, in route.

Specifics, man! We need specifics. We can use decibels to measure noise, but what do we use for "bitey-ness"??


Ouchians. Bear is 72.39582 Ouchians.


Is that a black bear, or a grizzly bear?

Re: USS DISCOVERY vs TOS E THOUGHTS

Well, I like the Ent-D less, as time goes on. The Excelsior and Ent-B have been growing on me, but I'm hoping I can get a shot, for that.

The Shenzhou looks like a Rockin' lost era ship. Kind of a Centaur done right. I'm undecided on the Discovery, until I see more of it.
