Vulcan mods

I bought the Vulcan shuttle upgrade parts from Modular Models for the airlock, for the flying sub to shuttle build. Well all that resin cannot be wasted. The down side is the older of the two I have is already built, this required power tools to get the well glued old parts off. This is also why the...

Re: Three Nacelle ships

That is truly the point behind the various "design schools" of starships. You should be able look at it on the screen and nail the place it comes from in one second. Model makers are not starship design engineers, no one is. However they are visual artists that know how to make something have an ide...

Re: which scale?

I'd like to go 1/1400 but the only locally availlable kits are 1/1000 and 1/2500... Of course they also have the VW bus sized super kits, but the wife would strangle me if I bought one of those. I would strangle me if I bought one of those. 1/2500 and 1/1000 have gotten a big push by the pro maker,...

Re: Three Nacelle ships

Ah, my apologies. I thought this was more of a canon discussion, not a "in my opinion" one. Got it. I usually defend the "odd nacelles are canon" debate since I actually really like 3 nacelled ships since first finding the Franz Joseph manual on my parents' shelf. Once it starts getting to be over ...

Re: Three Nacelle ships

Titanic had 3 propellers. Many other larger ships also had uneven props. Titanic sank. It also had both turbines and reciprocating engines. The Olympic class was an odd bird at best. It landed firmly at the cusp of the change in technologies. And the big container ships and supertankers have ONE pr...

Re: Sanding Sticks?

They don't last as long. I use a given hobby stick for years on average. I've destroyed the beauty shop models in a single session.

Re: Three Nacelle ships

I've never been that fond of them, most for the reasons mentioned. Most look like two nacelle designs with an extra nacelle tossed on. (We will not speak of the six nacelled Mary Sue battleship stupor-dreadnutten monster I found on line.) My explanation for four nacelle designs like the Constellatio...

Re: D'deridex (Pic Heavy)

I'm going to recommend this. http://www.micromark.com/professional-sprue-cutter,9277.html. I find the things invaluable. Note Micro Mart is expensive on this one. Shop around. http://www.micromark.com/RS/SR/Product/84386_R.jpg And if that isn't fine enough there is this thing. http://www.micromark.c...

Re: 1/200 Flying Sub to Trek Shuttle (now picture heavy)

No, I have not abandoned this. I don't work quickly and revamping the Vulcan shuttle got in the way. See I had all these parts.... Anyway. I have the airlock on and centered. I glued the part to a piece of plastic angle stock for a stable platform in the miter saw and cut it down. No glue on the goo...
