Well, after a couple of months of model building inactivity due to job overtime, I've finally managed to make a small amount of progress on the big refit. I pulled the camera out to celebrate this evening, and I thought I'd share the results with all of you. I still have a long way to go (haven't even started azteking yet), but I'll get there eventually. Enjoy.

I really wanted one of those... but when I tried to order one I was told the molds had gone bad just a month earlier and they were no longer available.

I haven't seen pics of one that really knocked me out... have you read the threads on pearlescent paints used on the film miniature?

Oh yeah, I've read all of the pearlescent painting threads. I intend to use pearls, I just have to get to that point!

Nice job man! Now you just gotta tackle the PL Refit 1701 when it comes out...by the way won't the PL Refit be just a tad bit smaller than DeBoer Enterprise?

The Deboer kit is roughly 46 inches long. That puts it at just over a foot longer than the upcoming PL kit. I'm not sure what that translates to as far as saucer diameter is concerned.

I got what was probably the very last one Dennis made (unless some people talked him into one or two more). I would consider selling it, since I can admit to myself that I'll probably never get to it. Mine is untouched (well, okay, I did touch it, but that's all). PM me or email if interested.

Thats is just simply awesome! I've been building models for 30 years but this past year switched to Star Trek modeling. Imagine my suprise to see such a big beautiful Refit kit!!!! Sadly, it sounds like from this thread that, I learned of them too late. :( Anyway that is a great build. I hope to see pics of it completed.

Hey J. Cat just think the PL Refit Enterprise will be out in a month or so hopefully and it'l be just as a good of a build up as the DeBoer. :) But yeah Disillusionist your build up of that is quite impressive. Can't (well can) wait to see her fully finished with decals and painted. :)

That looks simply incredible! Even without the final paint the ship looks so smooth and solid and HUGE! The lighting is really great too. :)
