Yep. Going to lay on the sensor bands first. Also have to put the pinstripe around the b/c decks too as well as two more name badges and the yellow reaction control decals.

Well, turns out Don from DLM is a and a rip off. I ordered a set of sensor bands and suppliment decals 10 days ago only to receive from him a frakkin empty envelope.. i tried to call the number on his website only to get a womans voicemail. It doesnt appear im going to get my build done. This plain sucks.

Yep, just got off the phone with the moron. Sounds like a nice guy but how in the world can you send out an empty envelope and no invoice, nothing in it???? I really have no idea but it really makes me wanna withdraw due to it not going to be done. He said he would get a set out tomorrow but it's a day late and a dollar short. I absolutely WILL not be ordering from him anything else and will post everywhere I can about the poor customer service that I was given. It takes one bad experience to taint a company with me and this did it. I understand he may have another job but if you are going to run a company and sell a product you really should get said product out in a timely manner. This is ridiculous. I did give him a 10 day window to get them here. More than enough time. well rant over.

If its just the sensor band, could you call it done? Add the sensor band and the rim windows at a later time if the need comes up?

Maybe but its not only the sensor bands. Its the pinstriping as well as the rcs thrusters on the saucer not to mention the window decals for the saucer rim. This one thing screwed tbe whole build for me. Its kinda like having a birthday cake and leaving the icing off. Ya know what i mean?
