The Constellation it has it's own thread, I'll spare you. But Dang that thing leans back. I need to re-drill the mounting hole right against that pylon I think This thing is HEAVY.

D7 1/1000 Shake the box and display. From the angle I normally see it I did not realize how much the neck droops. it fell off while I was cleaning it. Yea that attachment is not great.

Where did you say the Klingon neck droops? At the connection to the engineering hull or the neck itself?

Having built this kit myself years ago I can tell you the droop is at the connection point where it meets the secondary hull. So it's a problem with the way the model was designed, not sure how to go about fixing it.

Tesral love the kits, hope you get around to finishing the Stargazer.

It's a relatively simple fix - shim with thin plastic stock to "lift" the angle of the neck.

Like the man said the attachment point, It was a snap kit and I snapped it. Needs more love.

Haven't built the model myself, but doesn't the Klingon neck angle down from the engineering hull? Or is the angle more severe than it should be?

It should be in line with the wing root, it is not.

The angle on Garry's model is much steeper than it's meant to be. That's actually a problem of the original release run of the kit itself. It was sort of twisted to the right (I think it was?) ans angled downward.

So at the base of the neck, you have to trim on the left side and shim the bottom a bit?
