Thanks trooper! Thought I saw you're waiting for one of steve's 1/2 SS 1701. I've had the pleasure of using a couple of his parts on this build. If they're any representation of the rest of the kit, all I can say is start getting excited!trooper
man your doing some darn fine work there.
Thanks IED! At your request Here are more pics. I'm still getting used to being able to show off progressive build shots. A lot of the work I've done in the past, I can't even show. Too many non-disclosure agreements have been signed. I'll just say Di$ney.IEDBOUNTYHUNTER
Looking good. Keep it coming. waiting for more.
Thanks Gamera! She's a big'n, weighing in at just under 6'.Gamera68
wow, such a HUGE project :O
It must be over 6 feet long, since the studio model was around 11-12 feet in length, IIRC.
I can not wait until she's all finished.
And I thought the 1/1000 scale was a lot of work, LOL.
WoW... Thanks Kurok! Belive me I didn't start out patient with this. After the first month of working on it & discovering all of it's eccentricities, I had to resign myself to a full re-design & the slow & thoughtful road.KUROK
To take on a kit like this and do such a good job, I believe you should get builder of the year award! Your patience is amazing!!!!
Thanks trekriffic! It's been a mission.trekriffic
Well I have to admire your sticktoitouvness. Remarkably nice job so far.
It will be rotated when permanent install is done, just kind slapped it in there for the pic to show the idea.Aren't you going to turn your bridge 26 degrees, or whatever it is?
That round thing on the bridge dome is the Turbo Lift. It goes in the back.
...or has the thinking changed? I haven't built an E in 25 years.
Had thought about it, just to have a spare in case of accidents. Ran into problems separating the handrails & decided to stop before I had that accident. With parts that small, I'd want to spincast it, & thats one toy I don't have.... yet.any chance you can make a mold of that bridge lol ?
