    An excellent start. Everything looks nice and even. I did the intrepid from that site and ended up with a wavy, wobbly mess at the end. Kudos!

    Nice build.

    I've been looking at building this one. But worried about the dreaded warp nacelle 'droop'. The plastic guys should know about this, with the ERTL kit. It was always hard to get the nacelles to stay at the proper angle.
  11. ^ true i had to use invisible thread to keep mine in line without the thread it looks like a drunk ship

    Cool, got that, thanks. I have Ron Caudillo's TOS Enterprise and the Refit and a couple of others, guess I'm going to have to get them all together and check the scales and start work on my fleet. After I finish up some of the existing projects, that is.:mrgreen:
