  1. Thanks for all of the advice guys. I decided to go with the 2500 amt ships - They are simply amazing! Very easy to assemble - parts fit great and the decals are simply breathtaking. I just completed the original Enterprise and I'm now working on the A & B. I've also ordered the C, D, & E. I can't wait to see them all lined up in the same scale. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting a complete collection of the ships in the same scale. One draw back is that the original ship and the A are very small - but compared with the bigger ships it makes it all worth it. I wouldn't have room for all of these models if they weren't in this scale.
  2. Awesome, thanks Jay - I think I'm going to take your advice and go with the 2500 versions for now - I sure do appreciate the information!
  3. I'm more of a realistic simulator fan (FSX). I have played some of the AC games, but like Lock n' Load said - they're a bit too arcadey - I suppose that's the point though. The games are usually very visually stunning though, and the story lines are pretty interesting. I like all that "what-if" stuff. But they aren't realistic at all. :( Maybe these will be different.
  4. I wouldn't mind building in 1/2500 but I am wanting something closer to the 1/1400 or 1/1000. Since the Enterprise -C, -D, & -E are available in 1/1400 I'm surprised nobody has done the -NX, -As and -B. Also, does anyone know what scales Voyager comes in?
  5. MHaz, Thanks for the quick reply. I was afraid of that. I was hoping they would all be available in 1/1000 or 1/1400 scales. The 1/2500 D and E models are a decent size for me but the A, B, & C are rather small. Maybe I'll just start off with the C and do the D and E in 1/1400 for now. Thanks again -
  6. I'm planning on building a Star Trek Enterprise ship. However, I want to eventually build all of them but I want them all to be in the same scale. I'm having trouble finding all of the variations that are available in the same scale. What is the most common scale for Star Trek ships? I would also possibly like to build some of the other ships later and would also like for them to be in the same scale (bird of preys, voyager etc.). The only scale that I have found all of the Enterprise ships in is the 2500 scale which is too small for me. Are they all available in 650, 1000, 1400? If so where can I find them? Thanks guys
  7. Wow that looks very nice! I didn't know a centennial paint job was going to be done on a T-45. I've spent a good deal of time at Meridian NAS around these jets and in the simulators and they are fabulous little birds. Are there any T-45 models out there? I haven't been able to find one. I would love to use this paint scheme on one - nice job, maybe I'll see it around!
  8. And I apologize if I am flooding the forum with questions that are already available. The models in the galleries are absolutely stunning though, just looking for some one-on-one professional suggestions. -Thanks fellas
  9. Yes, I have learned my lesson about using thinners... Again, I am totallyyyy new to the hobby. Making a new canopy at the moment sounds like a little more than what I'm capable of at the moment, however I will keep it in mind in the future. I am going to try the techniques you guys recommended next go around. Hopefully I'll get it right next time. Do you guys free-hand the canopy with a brush or tape it off and use a spray?
  10. Oh and also the canopies are beyond repair.. :( Do you guys know of any helpful tips and methods for painting canopies? It's almost as if when I make one wrong brush stroke it ruins the entire thing. (leads me to sanding or using some type of thinner to try and remove it and totally ruins the plastic)
  11. Thanks a lot guys, I'm sending the information to HLJ now. I've heard it can take a while to get the parts, but as long as they are on their way I can wait. There are plenty of other models I want to start while I wait. This site seems to have great resources and some very informative members. I plan to learn a lot here! Thanks again!
  12. Hey guys, I'm new to the site and this is my first post. Also, I've only recently started building model planes. I'm loving it so far but I'm learning as I go and making plenty of mistakes along the way. However, I have completely messed up the canopies of the first two aircraft I have built (Hasegawa A-4E/F & EA-6B). Does anyone know where I can buy these spare parts without having to order completely new models? Any help would be greatly appreciated and I'm glad to be here! Thanks!
