Problem.... i don't have them 4 missing wedges for cut-outs in the prow

so now what?

i know i don't have the textured plastic sheeting to try to make them (not sure my hands would even be steady enough to attempt them) - so how should i proceed at this point? mold and cast the Galor without them or just shelve it again?

as of tonight, if i don't hear anything on the Galor (and it's current issue - the missing wedges along the prow), i'll be molding up the Unknown tonight rather than the Galor. i have seen the oooh's and ahh's posted but no feed back if i should still mold it

okay, the Galor is being shipped back to Scott as i can't see molding it as is so the Unknown is being molded, so gather up your pennies

and after all of these pictures of the ship (less all the detail parts to go with it) no one likes what they do see?

looks like a great ship and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it/them.
I have no idea how you would go about moulding the four parts so I could give you no advice there.

Scratch building those 4 parts should not be to hard

Probably have something that would work in my spare parts box

i all ready sent the ship back to scott today along with some .010" and .015" plastic rod for him to glue up one a piece of something to give that same look and scale

i am also looking at Evergreen plastic https://evergreenscalemodels.com/collec ... car-siding as a replacement material for the bay doors (hard to believe i even remember what SF said he used for the doors), anyway, i think that is the stuff i am looking for. i sent a door along with the model and will check with Scott to see if he thinks i found the right stuff, if he did, i'll order a packet and send it to him

glad you guys are still liking Fox's work after all this time - honestly, i forgot about this sitting on Scott's shelf all this time (out of sight, out of mind)

and now checking the Evergreen sheet against the Plastruc's it's twice as small making it the correct stuff, so now i'm going to run to the (semi) hobby shop to see if they carry it or not, if not i'll have to order a packet and send it to Scott
