    USS Enterprise E from Star Trek Nemesis

    Yep. I had the fiber optic D too. That was easy compared to this though, you only had to drill a single hole for each window for the fiber strand to fit thru. For the E, I drill at least two holes for each window and then work the drill bit in and out, back and forth, in the slot to clean out...

    USS Enterprise E from Star Trek Nemesis

    Update... I had been debating whether or not to open up the window ports or just rely on gloss white paint to give the illusion of lit windows. Then I thought about how cool those low light shots of the E looked with all those rows of lit up window ports so I finally decided to just go ahead...

    Did some work on the quantum torpedo port... A slot was drilled and filed out previously for the quantum torpedo launch port which is just above the Captain’s yacht in the underside of the saucer. The port will glow blue thanks to a transparent blue styrene part leftover from the 1/350 TOS...

    Always loved the U-boats. Such a cool design. Nice work on all of these!

    USS Enterprise E from Star Trek Nemesis

    Sorry for the long delay between posts but I've been spending a lot of time working on the nacelle lighting. I finally got them sorted out though and glued together. Unfortunately, my camera and work laptop aren't communicating. My company has clamped down on any use of the USB port (the one I...

    USS Enterprise E from Star Trek Nemesis

    New update... Took about 10 minutes to put things back where they belonged on what had become a cluttered workbench, an old drafting table. Then I got out my Dremel with the grinder. It would soon be messy again, covered by small bits of styrene popcorn peeling off the plastic from the hot...

    Yes. I looked up Pan Am on Google and Eclipse Holdings of Rockville, MD paid $1.3 million for the trademark rights to the logo back in 1993.

    Space Clipper Orion from 2001 A Space Odyssey

    I too built the old Aurora kit as a kid. I remember it had an atomic engine you could reveal by removing the aft section of the ship. This ship is built from the first release of the Moebius kit and is basically the same as the Aurora kit but without the engine. Moebius issued a second release...

    USS Enterprise E from Star Trek Nemesis

    New update... I'll use an aluminum tube for the display base with a plastic tubing insert (had to modify a larger diameter plastic tube hence the slice and section removed). It will slide into the aluminum tube almost flush leaving a tiny gap where the threaded barrel of the Size K DC power...
