1:537 AMT USS Reliant for sale

Post by nova1972x » Sat Aug 06, 2016 11:40 am

1:537 AMT USS Reliant for sale, asking $15 plus shipping (except if you are trading a model with me, then no shipping needed, as long as you are CONUS).

Disclaimer: This is a complete kit, but might be better suited for someone who is an experienced modeler.

Description:
I recently purchased this bagged kit (it does not include a box, but does have decals), and have since decided not to build it. This kit has all the parts, but some parts are from an older AMT release, others are from a newer release. This kit has the newer rear bulkhead piece, so you would either need to trim that down to fit, or extend the rest of the hull to the proper thickness. The person who sold this kit to me stated trimming might be easier to do than filling, but either can be done by an experience modeler. Another option is Federation Models sells a saucer correction kit for $15 that includes the whole rear bulkhead that is much better detailed than the kit part, along with resin shims. Also, that person recommended using an epoxy instead of glue to assemble the bulkheads.

Reason I am selling:

Nothing wrong with this kit. But the size of the model is more than I have space for, and the work required at my skill level requires more time than I have. So it is better for this model to go to someone who has the "space-time" for it! :mrgreen:


Open to trades!
I am looking for a 1:2500 Enterprise-D (either the old AMT\ERTL, or the Round 2 will do, and I don't necessarily need decals if you don't have them), so I am willing to do a straight up trade.

I also could use a 1:2500 TOS Enterprise & 1:2500 TMP Enterprise-A (either AMT\ERTL or Round 2), and I have decals for those, too.

Anything you want to trade can be assembled already, as long as it/they are in decent condition, not broken, and just need a fresh coat of paint (I like painting better than assembling, anyway).

Also willing to consider an interesting trade smaller than the 1:537 scale (EG: to give you an idea of the size I like, prefer to keep around the size of a 1:1000 TOS Enterprise or 1:2500 Enterprise-D model, or smaller).

That would be awesome, Cosika. I very much appreciate that!

For the record, I was very happy with everything you sent, including the Reliant. Just didn't work out for my time schedule, and to be honest, my skill level.

Thanks. I decided I want to try to do a Centaur kitbash with one of my spare Excelsiors and therefore need some of those Reliant parts :lol:
