    Well it worked fine for me. Have you tried both the regular link and the mirror?

    Dyna-Soar: nice looking build! What did you use for the bussard ramscoops?

    Oh, and do you mind sending that stand my way?

    So after looking at these pictures Dyna-Soar, at least my suggestion about the secondary hull was an unfair criticism (there you go judging a model by a couple of pictures.... a mistake I won't make again). I'll be trying out the new model in the near future and hopefully post pics of it when it is finished. I'm actually in the midst of job searching/interviews which has dominated my time and is getting more intense as time goes on. So hobbies are on the back burner.

    Sorry about the earlier critiques....

    FYI that was directed to Paragon, not Dyna-Soar.... I'll be proofreading my posts twice from now on.

    Well, to be fair, my beta build didn't include the altered secondary hull. I redesigned that part and built it to make sure it was right before release.

    Also, I remember someone mentioning a wish that the planetary sensors on the bottom of the saucer were less conical and more rounded. I just discovered that if you rub you thumbnail against the point of it, and apply a very small amount of pressure, you can actually smooth out the shape and make it more dome-like. Make sure you wait until the glue is completely dry though.

    not familiar with... can't quite make it out

    What's that other small front one next to the Klingon BoP? I can't identify it... or at least its hard to identify because of the angle and small size.

    Did anybody ever find out what Dino-Soar used as through plastic end pieces on Paragons enterprise model? I'm slowly assembling a model myself and wanted to include that effect if possible.

    It's just some clear plastic that I heat formed with a bic lighter and a marble.

    Looks complete to me too. Most of the parts are contained on pages 1 and 4, but I think I saw a couple straggler parts on some other pages. Check the instructions on Ron's original model - the construction seems to be almost identical.

    Hey paragon I wanted to let you know I started a build of your updates ST XI enterprise. It's slow going because of the limited time I have to work on it but I'll post some pictures when it's finished. I have made a couple of by-hand changes to the secondary hull which I'm actually pretty excited about. Hopefully the pictures will come through when it gets finished. I'll have more time this weekend too so I'm hoping by middle of next week.
