spheric thor, thanks man, thats the link i was going to look for in steves veeeeery long thread
uh oh! that doesnt sound good
I just got some of the finger nail acrylic and the good thing is you can get it everywhere. I'll will let you know how it works out.
i got some yesterday, it looks great! the only thing is it was $50 , I'm going to buy some of it off ebay that Ive seen for $10 for the powder just to see if it is the same quality, just so i know for future need

Paul, thank you
been doing the boooring task of drilling windows
just be thankful your employed, many are struggling to find work around here, you'll get back to it soon....i look forward to seeing your done.
I've been wondering how you were coming along Paul, I'm looking forward to seeing both of these ships done
Oh and Monster Makers does have the clear dental acrylic, you just have to look for it.
Chk the window templates when drilling/cutting your window.
I needed to go back and enlarge some of my windows after the fact.
They needed be slightly bigger in some places.
Also one of my video covers a couple windows Steve Missed.
That are on the CD he sent you.
(Luv you STEVE...LOL)
Just a little advice..LOL
Thank you for the support.
I'll get back on my BIG E soon.
Thank you all
thanks for the heads up, i did see that, i also found a couple windows not on the kit, it will be on my next video. i was making sure the temp's would fit and noticed that i did need to make the wholes larger, after i already cut em out there fine now
Lookin' good man!
I'm SO jealous of you, building your nice well done kit
On the dental acrylic, if you have a Sally Beauty supply close. Try their Beauty Secrets clear nail powder, it's a good product & only about $7 for enough to do the build 4x over.
Also wanted to suggest a Bondo sub. USC makes 2 great products "Icing" & "Thin Ice". They're comparable in price to Bondo, but way easier to sand & lighter. Bondo uses limestone as the filler & the USC ICE stuff is a glass bead filler. Of course evercoat is the ultimate, but is $45.
Again Lookin' good!
Orbital- thank you very much
i cant wait to come to Portland in a couple months and see the ship you built
in a test i did, i noticed that the back side is textured, is this normal? it would seem i need to sand it down or it will show up when lite. does the stuff you use do the same thing ?
ron1- thanks man
It seems to be the nature of the beast. The back will have a frosted look. I filled the holes completely then smoothed over the powder before applying the monomer. It helped keep the surface level at least.
Are you going for clear or diffused windows?
i gave up trying to do the clear resin windows while working on my 350 refit, i could never find a resin that cures in a reasonable time and with out all the bubbles. so im going diffused on this and if it looks good im going to do the same on my refit.
I hear ya, clear windows are such a pain. Unless there is something to see inside I go diffused.
well, here's the next video, sorry these are so long
i do need to stop taking a nap after work and then shoot videos with out combing my hair first .....
1/2 studio scale 66" star trek tos big E project #3 - YouTube
Can't wait till Round 2 1/350 comes out. Have mine on reserved.
yep, me two
Jerry you are doing an outstanding job. Good job on cutting the windows first before you fixed that warped SOB. Unfortunately the Engineering hull has a bad warp in it and the saucer has a few too from the molds just getting tired. But you're fixing them right up good.
thank you very much Steve , it's really not that bad, as i stated in the video....im a bit anal and ocd
I'm very happy with this kit, you have no idea , i would build several if i could, you did an outstanding job in building this, thank you
hopefully I'll do ya proud
now if i can get mods to understand this IS studio scale ...and move it back
haaaaa, thank you
back home! back home!
I still have flash backs about all the Everclear,sanding and painting oH MY...LOL
funny that I should enjoy that sort of stuff i just do.
