What flaws are you referring to? I was seriously considering this kit, and already have the Enterprise model. (Need a whole room to display both.)Originally posted by tobiasrichter@Mar 4 2006, 06:25 PM
Yes, that would be me again . I have that kit for about 5 months now. The price was unfortunately even higher than the Enterprise - and it has a couple of small flaws which I hope Tim is able to correct. I have no doubt this will turn out as another excellent model.
I saw the photos on Dennis' page, and notice the sensors immediately... thought it may have been a camera/photograph issue. But apparently not. How do you fix that? It's not a seperate part you add to the hull, and would be really tough to physically move. Has Tim had any ideas or is he going to leave 'well enough' alone?Originally posted by tobiasrichter@Mar 5 2006, 08:33 AM
Overall, this is a very nice kit and I donÂ´t regret buying it.
That said, the things I noticed so far are:
The curvature of the torpedo pylon is slightly off - too straight in the middle.
A bit difficult to fix is that the sensors on the top of the saucers (those "clamps") are about half a centimeter too far on the outside, making it almost impossible to line up correctly with the red stripes on the front saucer.
And the bridge is also slightly tilted to the back - same thing as with the Enterprise.
As I said, nothing major, but unfortunate (especially the sensor issue)
Hope that helps,

It will be a challenge to change the sensors. The only way is to cut them out and fit them in at the right position, filling the gap with styrene and putty. Not an easy task, but I think it could be done. I hope Tim will try it ...
