TOS P1

I was just curious. Does anyone here like to recreate the prop from the series?

I happen to have a model of the P1 that I am crafting as a hobby. I also have a enterprise model that is going to be very tedious work to finish. Anxious to know if anyone else is into it.

P1? As in Phaser Type I?

Yup. It's prop board shorthand. It's not in common use around here, which might help answer ZosialNCC1701's question.

True. You were confused, though.

Nah, what you perceive as confusion is just me picking on newbies.

(Just kidding, of course.)

Oh, okay well in that case, we can get down to business about our midgrade P2s. It would be nice to have a hero, but so far all I've got is a crapazoid with a real ten-turn on the back. That's something, but if one of us knocks the bucks out of wood, we can get something better assuming you've got the kydex. Oh, and someone will have to scrounge up some good side rails and some extra-crispy, too. Can't forget that.


....what?

Ich denke, wenn ich darauf in deutscher Sprache reagiere, wirst du genauso viel verstehen, wie ich bei dir. Ergo: Gar nichts.

Yes, but mine actually meant something.

No, wait. Damn!

There's no kydex in a phaser.

You know, the sad thing is I actually read your post several times trying to understand it.

However, back on topic: Yeah, P1 thingies! Aren't they neat?!

I know. But I needed another impenetrable piece of lingo, so...

I'm just messing with you. What I wrote is accurate--except for, as deck pointed out, that the phasers never used kydex. (Which was the textured black plastic used for the body shells on the tricorder and communicators.) I actually was trying to imply that what you wrote was meaningless, compared to my meaningful post, before my realizing you'd one-upped me with German....but it didn't realy come through.

Frak yes. And shiny, too. I've got an Art Asylum phaser sitting around waiting to be repainted, but I've never gotten around to it.

Damn, over 15 years of being more or less able to master English ... and your text just looks like gibberish to me.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if you'd be able to get a meaningful translation. It was just my way of illustrating how your text was looking to me.

I guess in a thread about P1s and P2s this is considered off-topic, but the one thing I ever wanted to own was a decent model of the original Enterprise. I had an AMT model kit when I was a child, but I was too stupid to put it together properly. And now all these nice models which are already finished (yeah, I know; that must sound like heresy to a model builder ) are available. But they are way too expensive for me.
