    Yes, another one! I built this for a friend who ran a hobby shop that had to close. His last day in business, a tear in his eye, he handed me this kit off the shelf, and a lighting kit, and an Aztec airbrush set as payment, and asked me to build it.

    Absolutely beautiful! I am amazed as to how you got the detailing on that tiny shuttlecraft to look so clean!

    [Wipes a tear from his eye] It's just so beautiful... [sigh]. I really wish I could afford one of these. Who am I kidding. The damn thing would stay in the box in perpetuity.

    Really fine job Forbin. Sorry to hear about the hobby shop closing. I have plans next summer to work at a camp teaching model making in hopes of inspiring some interest. Start small to give some success and then move up. The 1/1000 scale Enterprise is on the agenda. Hopefully this will increase interest in an art that has to compete with 3d art. There is a place for both IMHO.

    Again, fine job. You attention to detail is fantastic.

    Sweet! Looks like the Botany Bay is just about the right scale for it! Was that a scratch build?

    Tanks everybody :)

    It's a resin kit made by Sovereign miniatures, also sold by Fantastic Plastic. It's billed as 1/350 scale, so yup, it should be the right size!
