neat, I enjoy seeing the battle-damaged versions of ships.
so, I'm curious; how did you achieve the effect?
did you shoot the saucer with a BB-gun? use a Dremmel, a hot-wood-poker/solder-iron?

that's cool - was it the dry-wall 5053-b bit or the wirey bit,
or some own bit of your own making? :borg:

dang,
I had secretly hoped it had been a "RedHotNickelBall" of Youtube style bb pellet in the garage. :D
it looks like a steelie-BB that had been heated and fired at close range, just the way that trail edge looks so molten-y.

thanks for the detail,
now I can give this a try on a 'warp-core breach USS Discovery" diorama I might have on the back-burner. :D
