A number of Trek models which I won't list.

However, as far as other stuff goes, I'm actually starting my first figure kit. Okay, it's a pretty lame kit, but I'm building the AMT alien. I'm going to work my way up to the Halcyon alien warrior kit.

Working on the P.L. Hunchback.What a great model!I hate the plastic ropes though.Anybody got a good idea how to replicate woven rope? :jest:
Try actual string - I've seen some where the weave really looks like a small version of rope. I've also seen fine chain used effectively.

Check out some of the model ship rigging rope out there. It comes in all sizes and colors. Just search hobby supply shops on line or better yet, go to a craft store and look in the section for beads and necklace making supplies. They will have a good range of bead threads and even very thin (almost as thin as thread ) leather chord that looks good as well (and to think I used to cringe when my wife wanted to go to Hobby Lobby or Michaels).

A full size replica of the holes I cut in my walls to run video
cable through (lots of puttying, sanding and painting, no
decals though).

Otherwise the PNT tug conversion for the PL 1701. Also a
Macross Regult that now has a base to keep him from tipping
over, that needs seam work on it's thighs, touch up paint
and then weathering.

On the bench...

Sometimes it seems it'd be easier to answer, "what am I not working on." Anyway, in the past week, I've been --
assembling Jango's Slave 1 - which got me to also pull out the old MPC kit of Boba's Slave 1 (it's about 1/83 if the FineMolds kit is indeed 1/72)
painting WARP's Jem'Hadar
assembling a PL D-7 (while watching A Wrinkle in Time monday eve)
assembling Imai's Mospeada Legios fighter (while watching Ent yestereve)
futzing with lighting for the NX01

Edge, Any pics of the Regult? Missles or scout? Mine is in model limbo....
No pictures at this time. It is a standard issue Regult 1/72 Imai kit (the
biggest one made). I did it rather simply, not too fancy (kinda like
seen on the show). It took a tumble a few years back and needed
to be fixed, that is mostly done now, but I noticed it developed the
cracks on the "thighs". :( I'll try and get some pictures of it soon, but
I don't have a digital camera yet.

Sold my Glaugs, along with most of my Macross stuff,
awhile back. :(

I have a Queadluun-Rau kit which needs to be finished,
it has been completely hand painted, but looks pretty
good.

Here's a picture of the kit box (not mine just one I found
on the web, my box apparently has disappeared):

I also have a 1/72 transforming VF-1S to build sometime...
