:lol: Lady, you should visit some websites I know.....There was one for sale (or on display) at a Creation con a few years ago. It was painted bright sky blue overall with hideous hand-brushed aztecking and numerous building flaws, and mounted on an unfinished, reickety wooden cradle that even Homer Simpson would have disowned. A woman at the table said "It was built by a college kid! Isn't it fantastic?"
With this stuff, and you want to make money. It's not the time to get creative.For someone who doesn’t or can’t build a model of the Enterprise A they wouldn’t buy it because its Waaaayy Too expensive and a serious collector wouldn't go near it for the flaws and obvious mistakes it has plus they can do much better for the money. Builders like these need to think of their target market and build accordingly.
Like John P said, he may be a member here. And HE may be real proud of it. A little TOO pround with the price for sure, but proud of his build none the less.
If I were to build a mediocre kit and posted it here would I get the same reaction? I hope not, wouldn't be much encouragement.
I'm sure I'll get flack over this but sometimes I just feel like taking up for the underdog. So shoot me.
