Re: 1:350 Scale Enterprise

Wow it looks awesome - I salute your perfectionism. I've glued my saucer section already but I wouldn't have had the technical skill to do this! My one consolation is that even with the lights on, you can't see that much through the little windows - lol.

I bought about 50 of the citadel figures from the 80s and I'm going to paint a whole load of customised 25mm crew instead.

I'd like to see those figures. Mine are the Tamyia's.

As for the windows- I intend to enlarge them a little... I haven't done the math, but they look too small.

And here's a little update. The last for today- Some landscaping.


Being from Canada, it's getting a Canadian Shield type terrain. I know it looks messy, but there was a lot of work to make it look like this. I can not wait to paint this to really bring out the look!!!

Coool! Don't forget the bowling alley.

The crew are 25mm - too big for the model so I was just going to display them in front of the ship in a big wedge. They are caricatured - figures were not made to be as realistic in those days but they produced all the main crew, including Chapel and Rand as well as the various alien races. I figured with a few simple head swaps I can make about 50 crew. the only one I've done so far is transplant uhura's head onto a security guard's body to make Thel'Darra, a character from my Youtube comic.

I'm finishing my ship first, thnen I'll worry about converting and painting the crew!

Re: 1:350 Scale Enterprise

Get one of those PE sets (if you haven't already) and check your interior with the figures. Some of those platforms look very high relative to what I'm estimating the figure size to be. You're going to need some tiny staircases here and there.

I've been toying with getting one.

As for the platforms, they are indeed to be connected with stairs.

Re: 1:350 Scale Enterprise

Finally! Back to work. I scrapped my bridge walls and remade it in one sheet. Went with pasting on an image of the interior bridge. I'll add some 3D elements to give it some more depth- and colour...

Will your bridge be visible on the completed kits?

Re: 1:350 Scale Enterprise

Pretty much done the bridge- the flash really shows some whitish spots that you just can't see otherwise... Oh well. I'll run a couple fibre optic lights into it, but that's pretty much it for it. Well- the back docking bit- but that's just some walls.

Re: 1:350 Scale Enterprise

My pylon connectors seem too fat for the secondary hull. I could file them down to be thinner but I'm a bit worried that they have support a bit of weight. Am I being thick here or is this a known issue?

Re: 1:350 Scale Enterprise

They're supposed to be a very tight fit for support. Be VERY careful if you decide to file/sand to make them fit.

Re: 1:350 Scale Enterprise

I had an issue with the holes in the flanges not being even a close fit over the pegs so I filed them a bit. Have I made an elementary mistake early on because they really would not fit at all? Once I could get the pegs to fit I now have the gap. Was I supposed to force them to fit would adjustment because I had squeeze maybe a 3mm and forcing it would have scraped all the paint off. I did try being a bit forceful but it just looked like they were not going to fit at all.

Re: 1:350 Scale Enterprise

This is good to know about for when I get to it... And I welcome anything related to building this kit.

Anyone else excited about the original E kit coming out? It comes with a bridge (sigh)... My wife won't buy it for me until I finish this one- but i NEED to have it!!! Not that I have any idea where I will put two of these monstrosities.
