    1st Pilot Enterprise

    Yeah, I got so tired of waiting I built one of Randy Cooper's. I do hope R2 eventually gets around to the Galileo, because the subject really deserves an injection-molded kit. 14362472_10210293922081499_2140087266854883868_o-1 by Carson Dyle, on Flickr

    1st Pilot Enterprise

    Once I made the choice to go with painted-on hull markings (as opposed to decals) I knew I'd have to live with the incorrect "R." The only aftermarket vinyl stencils I could find were for the Production version, and although the "7" and "1" were easy to modify, the "R" was impossible. One...

    1st Pilot Enterprise

    It's a custom mix. One of the fellows who participated in the Smithsonian restoration of the 11-foot FX miniature was kind enough to forward a set of paint swatches based on the original Pilot paint scheme, so the colors should be fairly accurate (or as accurate as it's possible to get at this...

    Bandai 1/72 PG Millennium Falcon (also the Revell Germany rebox)

    Re: Bandai 1/72 Millennium Falcon If this isn't a kit Bandai is certainly marketing it like one. (-: Very excited about this. I'd held off on investing time and resources in a serious MF build in the hopes that Bandai would eventually release just such a kit. Based on the pix they appear to...

    Moebius Proteus

    Thanks for the suggestion! I've actually tried that. Very, very hard to keep the wire straight. Aztek Dummy has released a set of vinyl masks for the windows, along with a set of vinyl "gaskets" for the windows. I'll experiment with those and post the results here. I'm also going to...

    Moebius Proteus

    This thread will chronicle my efforts to build the Moebius Proteus kit. I had the privilege of helping to make this model a reality, and I’m grateful to Frank and Dave for providing me with an advance “test shot” of the parts. Having built a couple very fine Garage Kits of this subject I...

    Anigrand Stardestroyer

    What evidence do we have that it's a custom build? The simplest, most logical explanation is that Bandai acquired and built the Anigrand model, and are now using it for promotional purposes. Certainly the so-called Bandai kit has the exact same fit issues around the rear base of the "neck" as...

    Anigrand Stardestroyer

    I didn't have to remove the rectangles in question because they were not present on the Anigrand model. They were added to Bandai's build-up of the Anigrand model, along with a lot of other small details, by whoever built it. The so-called Bandai ISD is nothing more than the Anigrand kit with...

    UPDATE: Thanks in large measure to this thread, my money has been refunded in full. Kudos to Anovos for (eventually) honoring their "golden refund" policy.
