  1. Scifieric's 2019 USS Enterprise

    Science Fiction Modeling
    It's been a long while since I've posted here, although I have been prowling around many vary interesting posts. I did a tutorial series on how to build a version of the USS Enterprise from the original series using Blender 3D. This was the end result of that series, plus a challenge from...

    Science Fiction Modeling
    I reallllly wanna have spotlights shine from the nacelles down to the lower hull of the refite Polar Lights 1/350 model of the Star Trek USS Enterprise so that there is a focused and tight spot on the Starfleet insignia. Has anyone come up with a solution to do this and be able to share with me?
  3. Need a lighting kit for NX-01 PL 1/350

    Science Fiction Modeling
    I'm new to modelling. I have no idea how to wire anything from scratch. I need a lighting kit that is ready to go for the Enterprise NX-01 by Polar Lights 1/350 (not the refit). I did find some online, Monsters In Motion, a couple on eBay. Not sure if there is a better one that you all might...

  9. 1/350 PL Enterprise Resurrected!

    Science Fiction Modeling
    So after my misadventures with the saucer walls on my first go-around, Round 2 Models graciously sent me replacements! I showed them some of the photos and they sent me a new upper saucer, windows, and saucer walls with no hassle. Big thanks to them for that! With that, I would like to start a...
  10. Enterprise NX-01 Refit coming from Polar Lights

    Science Fiction Modeling
    I'm not a fan of the show or the ship, but I came across this article. Apparently, Polar Lights will be re-releasing the 1:1000 scale NX-01, but will also include with it parts to build the "refit" version of it as designed by Enterprise series production designer Doug Drexler. More info in...

    Since I learned the hard way not to cut corners with lighting kits (My exploding battery pack Reliant) I've purchased a proper soldering kit, wires, solder, shrink tubing, heat gun and other goodies. Also I have one of those small ebay airbrush booths on the way so I'm excited to finally do...

These are the colors chosen by Polar Lights as the best hobby paint equivalents to the custom paint mixes that Gary Kerr derived from his extensive research into the studio model. Recently, the idea popped into my...

    So we're approaching the release of R2's 350 E and I'm sure I'm not the only guy who feels the need to "get ready." I've got a shat-load of projects lined up between now and then, and what better place to start than with the dawn of all Trek modeling; The Crappy AMT TOS Enterprise kit. For...
  14. Question about scale: AMT's Romulan Warbird

    Science Fiction Modeling
    I've been working on building my workbench in my garage (so I have a place to work on kits, especially my battle-damaged Reliant). I came across one of my model storage boxes when lo and behold I found not one but two unfinished models of the Romulan Warbird from AMT's Adversary set from the...
