Excellent!! Thanks!!:thumbsup:Just sorting through images from the show for special features on the DVD release..here are some never before seen images from a second season show where a kid steals Uncle Martin's ship..enjoy them here for the first time anywhere..:wave:
The answer..That is the "Crash version" of the ship..it is a vent that is seen smoking after the ship crashes..Here's a close up of the back. I wonder if anyone will add this detail?
If the directions are followed, and if the parts are assembled in the correct fashion, and in the correct order, the closed hatch will sit perfectly well. The key is TEST FITTING the parts prior to applying glue to ensure proper alignment.
There are no decals... I just sprayed a base coat of black, then dry-brushed that with Modelmasters Magnesium silver. I did add a couple clear-color resin "lights" and a small strip of blue pin-striping, but that's about it.
The only tricky part will be masking off the interior prior to painting the hull -- although if you don't plan on puttying the hull seam then this won't be an issue.
I still haven't decided what to do about the surface of the base. It wants to be something "suburban" like grass, or garage floor, or sidewalk... something along those lines.
GREAT site; thanks for posting!
