    Thank you all very, very much for your comments. Actually, this is the second model I started here (the Landram was the first). I had a lot to learn and there were some really tough parts, but as RB said, patience is everything. I'm surprised at how stable the model is, too. You can shake it and even drop it to the ground without breaking anything.

    Did you read the whole thread? You are not reading the whole thread. What has been said is rather obvious. Read the whole thread, please! Particularly post #178 :cool:

    That is a BEAUTIFUL piece of work.
    As always, you have done a FANTASTIC job on this model.
    I am looking forward to adding it to my collection.

    Thank you all very, very much! Especially for your encouragement and patience. And yes, the blaster model is finished, the plans are ready (including the parts for the white Ship-of-Lights / timetravel version) and the instructions completed. I have sent everything to Rhaven for a final test build. If he doesn't have any issues with it, it will be released for everyone to enjoy.

    Yeah, Sorry Oriod01, I was having a bad moment, zathros was right, I should have been a little more level headed. I'd say a lot more, O.K., a lot more, How'd you get into this post zathros, a big pushy on your part. No, I don't think so, by the way, I just noticed what your wearing, nice ensemble!!.:joust1:

    No need to apologize, I didn't see it as rude. Besides I've been on /po/ before... after reading some of the comments and attitudes there you have to be a complete flaming d-bag to be seen as rude in my eyes, lol.

    I see Revel has a Buck Rogers blaster coming out soon, as well. Another of my favorites.
    While on the topic of sci-fi weapons, might I suggest the hand-gun from the original "V" mini-series. I remember Robert England as the friendly alien, Willie.
