    Were those Morser Carl or Leopold (I always get them mixed up) parts on the original model? Never realized those often-used kits had found their way into Trek. Excellent repro in the smaller scale.

    Thank you. The piece on the original studio model was a 1/72 German Leopold Railgun, and as far as the kit pieces finding their way into Trek ships, they were made by the same guys that made the Star Wars ships, so that probably figures.

    Got a little more done.

    Well what do ya know? HAND CRAFTED SCRATCH BUILDING happening right under our noses!

    This shows that accuracy and quality can be done with a mixture of man and machine.

    Looking back on that fine "hand crafted" bridge module detail again... and the two nacells with their added features and created parts? This is one AMAZING BEASTIE!!!

    Wonderful work!

    Sorry for asking a silly question, but is this ST:TMP or STVI:UC?

    Good question Rob.

    Star Trek TMP had the K'Tinga that Richard is doing now.

    Star Trek VI TUC had the Chronos One, which is an very updated K'tinga with lit nacells and a tone more of photo etch detailing.

    Richard..... duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude!

    Hey Richard,
    Just out of curiosity, did you try the 1/144 Leopold kits that came out a couple years ago? They have the same parts breakdown. Just asking

    Thanks.

    I bought a 1/144 scale Leopold and I was able to get 2 parts out of it, one of which was one I already scratchbuilt so I'll be replacing that one from the one I got out of the kit.

    I'm working on the neck now.
