    Compared to my JLong TMOST build the Robn1 shell is 1/8 inch shorter.

    You make it look SOOOO easy....:rolleyes

    This is something I'll do after simpler projects, like an AMT Enterprise Refit model, or a full size shuttlecraft...:lol

    Seriously though, I AM working my way up to one.
    You & Rob are one great team. It's like Romita inking Kane.

    Robn1 is working on molding issues right now, but I think it will be a limited run when he is brings it into production.

    That's great :lol:thumbsup

    Really great work Steve! Maybe the most authentic looking phaser build I've seen, not "dirtied up" just a natural hand made look. Your attention to details like the bare wire makes all the difference. And that red jewel looks lit up in most shots, like an LED. No wonder so many folks thought the props had lights in 'em!
