Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I've bought a lot of vinyl in the last 2 weeks. I have bought:

Black Country Communion - 2

Pearl Jam - Ten

Poison - Native Tongue

A bunch of Al Bowlly & Helen Forrest records with various Big Bands.

Stone Temple Pilots - Tiny Music. This one cost me 50, but was worth every penny.

The lighting up nacelles is a little annoying, deciding weather to paint over it with some lightblocking to make it more accurate. But then again It does look pretty nice.

Does it balance on its stand? The stand for the 1701 is atrocious.

Yep it's completely solid! I have both the 1701 and the refit and both have succumbed to those awful stands, the 1701 now has a glued on nacelle. But yeah this is really solid, the stand is much thicker and has 2 sides to the vertical part.

Turns out the Enterprise B has the markings for Excelsior on the engineering hull. And on one side they're reversed... DST Quality control, legendary.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

It's already been a few days, but a new €1600 desktop, because the old outdated system had died on me (mainboard & memory) and I needed something for my 3D projects.

Since then, only a few hundred bucks in licenses for plugins for my 3D software and of course the usual everyday stuff.

USB flash drive. Quite often have to replace as buggers are very easy to lose
