    Hi

    Now we find these two pieces of Chronicle, supposedly licensed, and supposedly officially canceled, sold in Monster in Motion:

    http://www.monstersinmotion.com/cart...el-kit-p-21626

    http://www.monstersinmotion.com/cart...quette-p-20050
    Oh, well... That kit was listed the same day the Chronicles one was cancelled. Same size, same origin, same pieces... Amazing coincidences

    Hello everyone

    I have received the missing pieces me, but last night, looking at some photos of the original model, I realized that I needed another piece of the original tower, and in the kit instructions does not appear, but clearly is missing that piece,

    Is missing only to me or everyone?

    Regards

    How is the quality if the replacements? Better or the same?

    In my case, it was one replacement, and 3 missing parts, and the quality is the same.

    I would have liked to see photos in detail of the pieces of other buyers.

    Speaking of 'known ships,' this one just turned up on the Propstore's website.

    The number / name doesn't jive with the previous numbers.

    Thoughts?

    I picked one of these up from Monsters In Motion, I think it was the last one they had in stock. Looks pretty nice to me, maybe they've addressed some of the issues, or maybe my eye isn't as sharp as some of you. All the parts seem to be there. It is big! Much more imposing in person, even if you know the dimension ahead of time.

    Looks like one of the parts might need to be replaced, but customer service at Chronicle seems to be very nice. Doesn't look to be lightable, I think that would be an impossible task to make it light ready, unless the parts are molded in clear.

    Reading that vfxhq article is like stepping in a time machine! I worked on the Rodger Young shots at SPI, one of the most fun movies ever to work on.
    Do you have any pics of the Athena? It was a beautiful model, but in all the years since the movie came out I've seen only FIVE pics of it! (And three of those were tiny thumbnail-size images.)

    Sadly I do not Charles. From what I remember it was just built for that one shot at the end, so it was pretty much a glorified maquette.

    So frustrating! It was a beautiful model, about 54 inches long from what I read. There was also a small version to match the desktop-size Rodger Young miniatures.

    I'd love to build an Athena, but I don't have enough clear pics to make out the detailing on it. Looks like a lot of rail gun parts, but without better reference I'd have to just make stuff up.

    Very nice work!! This is one of the nicest build-ups I've seen of the smaller desktop-size model.

    Lol, thank you very much. This is my model I made in 2006 or so. It still stands proudly in my starship troopers collection:-)

    I can see the prow being used for an alternative Excelsior neck--upside down
