Not sure where to put this subject but here. Also I am not trying to solicit anyone, but just airing my thought on the subject. Some years ago I eagerly purchased Polar Lights’ then newly released 1/350 scale TOS Enterprise model kit. Subsequently I purchased the later released smooth saucer hull pieces because I really hated the engraved gridlines on the saucer. Like so many others I had been waiting forty years for a properly accurate and decently scaled model kit of the original Enterprise. And Polar Lights answered the call in spades by offering you the chance to build the ship in one of three versions or in any way you wished. And more recently they made things even sweeter by releasing a good 1/32 kit of the shuttlecraft Galileo (which I bought) as well as an updated version of the Enterprise lighting kit (which I plan to get). All thats left is for them to release a 1/350 scale Klingon D7 battle cruiser kit. When I bought this I fully intended to build it as soon as I could. Then life intervened and one thing after another delayed the project. Now here I am some years later and I’m faced with two things: 1. My eyesight isn’t quite what it used to be. 2. I question my modelling skills to properly build this kit the way it should be and the way I want it to look when finished. Building this kind of physical model is quite different from building 3D models on the computer. It’s potentially messier and mistakes are not so easily corrected. As such I’m feeling daunted to attempt building this cherished kit and ruining it or at least doing it poorly. Dirty Harry once said, “A man has to know his limitations.” Thats how I’m feeling. I’m questioning my skill level and my own sense of patience. I don’t want to sell the model or give it away. I want it built to enjoy it. To that end I am considering finding someone reasonably local who has the required skills and paying them to build it for me. Thoughts? Has anyone else taken this route to have a model built for them?
