It`s Arrived!  My studio scale Next Gen Romulan Warbird kit arrived today.  Not a lot of parts but the fun and challenge in this is gonna be in lighting it up.  Fortunately it`s hollowcast which will make it quite easy.  Measures approx. 38" long x 25" across.

I`ve got the cloaked version of that somewhere ... Just can`t seem to find it.

But seriously, that is a monster of a kit, looking forward to seeing it come to life

Work on the Warbird continues. Got the window lighting sorted, just need to add the fibre optic strands, but won`t do until the very end of the build. Just have to install the laser permanently and i can close up and attach the "head" section to the body, without rubber bands and gaffer tape, lol!

Hmmmm, where`s the thing to attach photos?

Does the camera icon not appear in the toolbar?  I know this is happening for a few people and we`ve no idea why.  If not just add the link and I`ll edit it to include the image for you.

Ah here it is now...Wasn`t showing up the other day.  Been making good progress on the Warbird.  Just finishing up the fibre optic strands on the starboard side of the kit.  Punctured my thumb as well as under the nail multiple times from the sharp fibre, drawing much blood...painful to hold the material just now so I need to take a break to let it heal.  The photo of me holding the kit is for scale.  The others I shot last night in my back garden (blue photo paper backdrop).  I photo-shopped the stand away.   The laser is a badass one from China, now installed in the kit.
