Hi all.

As soon as I have all the electronics in place, I will be starting this build. Back to me building spaceships again and this one I have been looking at for some time, and it’s not Star Wars. I had looked at the Polar Lights kits, but the larger version was too big at 1:350 scale and the smaller one was very small. The Revell versions comes out somewhere in between, measuring around 50cm in length. I have also bought photo etch parts.
I will be doing the full electronics with this one, with rotating nacelles, lighting and detailed bridge and shuttle bay from the PE. The plan is to have a shuttle leaving the bay in flight, as well as having various sound effects, well that’s the plan.Cool

Coming soon.

Mark

This sounds like fun.

Thanks guys.Cool

This one will be very testing, trying to work out what parts to paint first as all the electronics need to be placed inside first.

Excellent! I’ve got the 350 TOS and the Refit in the stash, but as you say, they are BIG! I DO have the Kelvin with a basic bit of electronics, PE, and resin detail bits for. I’ve been procrastinating on the start, so maaaybeee this will get me motivated.
