Hi John,

I hate to be a butt-ass, I might take back my offer for replacement parts. I have since found out that considering how much I already have of the kit, with only a minimal additional investment in the clear parts and fresh decals that I will have an all-new complete kit. I think if I were to do this kit again, I would light it, but maybe only light the sensor array and warp nacelles. And maybe the bridge and the planetary sensor.

If you need to replace the planetary sensor dome on the underneath of the saucer, contact Round2 and you can have the part replaced rather inexpensively. They have been very good with responding to me.

No worries, I am also good with ebay and can find a kit there for cheap if needed.

Ordering replacement parts is cheaper than you may realize. For me, buying the clear parts runners and complete decal set will cost me only $9.95.

Well right there you convinced me to contact them if I need parts.  I am going to try and fix my mess...

Thanks Scott!

Up next, a set of videos where I make a few mistakes sorting out the circuits for the nav lights.

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing that!

I have bought the 556 timer chip as well as the necessary resistors, capacitors and such as per Jennifer Petkus's diagrams. I want to replicate her work sometime, but I've been busy doing other LED work between my Star Wars ship set, Cylon Raider, and R-Type R9-A starfighter.

It will be a little bit, work has overwhelmed me for the last two weeks.  The next two days are for sleeping....

Watch out for those decals, John.
My old kit, the one in the Excalibur buildup, had very brittle decals

Thanks for the warning.    I think I will hit them with some testors decal sealer first.  That should help.

Should help for sure. I hit mine with Liquid Decal Film, and it definitely helped
