Hi all,
I just got my hands on a Revell Venator Star Destroyer and I am busy looking for aftermarket stuff.
I know cosmos on Shapeways has some nice parts, but other than that I do not see a lot of options. Anybody know if there is someplace else that is offering anything for the kit?

One thing that I am looking for specifically is some "V-pattern" photoetch for the bridge/bay windows, similar to below. I would assume this should be in some generic battleship sets, but I have yet to find it.

I was always hoping for a set of landing gear for that kit. We get a partial view of it a couple of times, but having a ship that large sitting planetside is a wonderful display

yeah, a space dock scene with loading/unloading vehicles would be cool. I found the two pictures below (although one is the Acclamator class.)
My best guess would be that it would be difficult stability-wise. they would have to be made of metal to hold all that weight. I know they made some resin landing gear for the Star Trek Voyager that held the standard model, but you would be pushing it if you added too much weight to it.

In case anyone else is looking for the same, I did a bit of research here on the forum and was at least able to find the V-Pattern frames for the bridge windows. It is called "radiator panel plate" and can be found at https://acustion.net or a direct link to the panels [here].

Similar is a diamond mesh pattern that I found at https://www.multifilla.com or [here].

Hey, I have some of the acustion photo etch left over from a build I did a few months ago. I'd be happy to send you some, the shipping price from actustion was quite ridiculous if I remember correctly.

Thanks very much for the link to the radiator mesh. What scale is the correct one for the Venator bridge windows? Trying to get all the parts together for mine too.
