    “Doomsday Machine” U.S.S. Constellation Build

    I may go for it. It may not require a heck of a lot of talent, and good thing since I don't have a lot. ;) Hopefully I'd do a better job than the last time I built the (later version of the) kit circa 1983: By the way, the pic below shows the somewhat more clear amber domes on my kit. Kit I...

    “Doomsday Machine” U.S.S. Constellation Build

    You may be right, but the amber domes with the short “tabs” do seem closest to what’s depicted on the box and should give a similar result I think if one were to mask off the domes proper and paint the attaching ring and tabs with a “burnished” metal-like paint.

    “Doomsday Machine” U.S.S. Constellation Build

    Here's a question related to the long box kit - has anyone ever built one to look just like the built ship on the box cover? I recently acquired a complete unbuilt version with the lit nacelle domes molded in amber and with the 3 "shorty" tabs on the bottom , which appears to be the version...

    Advice sought, anyone in contact with REL aka Richard Long

    It sucks getting ripped off. The best solution in my opinion is to get what you were promised via some other means, and “amortize” the loss into that. Being out the money sucks, but what sucks even more I think is not having the item you were ripped off over. Of course that means once again...

    Spockboy's screen used M.R. Enterprise for sale

    In the image of the original below, I noted you added back the missing "tab" on the port side behind the deflector dish. Any other changes I missed in that image? When trying to mimic the restored filming model, it is a slippery slope when it comes to the asymmetric nature of the beast (like...

    Yes, thanks, I realized that after my post...that wire I THINK fed power to the saucer, and in some eps you can see what looks like tape trying to hide it and where it creeps up the dorsal. Silly that I didn’t realize / notice that before.

    Galileo scratch build (another one)

    Was gonna wait till the actual anniversary (It’s about a month early) but close enough. It’s now been nearly 3 years since the loser and theif David Shaw and his wife Tracy ripped me off for $400.

    Any opinions about JCModelworks (James Guard)?

    First week in January will represent 3 years ago I sent a deposit to the loser and THEIF James Cash Guard for a refit Enterprise build. Latest in a long line of excuses from this worthless jerk is he got busted for drunk driving and may lose his job as a corrections officer. Yeah, his name is...

    Any opinions about JCModelworks (James Guard)?

    This guy supposedly started up production on his refits again - that was in August. But nothing but promises since then. Pretty pathetic. Oh yeah, my avatar is still accurate.

    Any opinions about JCModelworks (James Guard)?

    Well, that's the thing...getting a judgement is not the same as collecting on it. Just to get a judgment, it could easily represent a few to several hundred dollars investment, maybe more - figure airfare or driving to a few states over, maybe having the guy not show up at court (what's one...
