Hey guys. Sorry, I guess I didn't expect anyone to really be here! Thanks for the responses. Believe it or not I've been on this site for 10 years, I just never checked in on it. And I was here before that but had to sign up again in 2009 when I finally found it again. Slacker, I know... anyway...
Did Steve ever get his coffee table book? haha
I read that there was a photo during restoration (along with witnesses) about the nacelle domes being removed and a color photo of the end WITH the lights still in it. I know that it was a private one and wouldn't be public after the restoration, but Gary said he got a good look at it. Was there ever a drawing/diagram of this? I would be interested because there's something like 20 lights (with the minis) in there, IIRC.
Gary did finally put out the painting guide, right? That's the one that showed up on CultTVMan? Was that the final say/version?
Good to be here! I will make sure to check in regularly.
