    Nice job, Col. Kurtz! And you're welcome, glad to see one built! I had one built myself, but it didn't survive an encounter with one of our cats (a Kzin in disguise, I wonder? :rolleyes:)

    Half scale, huh? I didn't notice before, but I see it now. Must be my Eyeball is out of calibration again :rolleyes:. Hmmm, wonder how far down I'd have to scale it to match one of the Enterprise kits out there? Time to dig out my references again...

    Nice build col. kurtz, I scaled my build down as well ?, about 75% ( thanks to software + printing problems :curse:) Slightly OT.. but I'd recommend giving Scott's Bender Robot a go as well.. He's a hoot and fun to build..!

    Hey Scott.. I didn't get those Prism Parts with the Aurora..? that version avaialble..?

    Gearz; Prism parts? Do you mean the Tholian logo in the background? It's not part of the kit, Col. Kurtz added that. I found a good image of it (and others) here; testsite I'll have to put one in there somewhere, I suppose.

    Col. Kurtz; Work on the project together? What did you have in mind?

    Thanks col. kurtz! I love bases and looking forward to your project... You got to love multiple models ( of the same type) You don't often see military / para-military hardware, strolling around by itself, so it gives a ...err.. 'Organised Force' feel to a display.
