  1. A little late to the party, but any updates on this? I stumbled across this thread since I recently got a 1/72 Revell Space Shuttle kit and was looking to see what people had done with it and what kind of after market parts there were What a fantastic build!
  2. This is one of my favorite build threads ever! So much cool information combined with a great build and attention to details!
  3. That really came together! Excellent work!
  4. The B-Wing is undersized for 1/72 based on the size of the included pilot figure (i.e. the pilot is closer to 1/87 scale) Likewise, the A-Wing, based only on the size of pilot, is over-sized for 1/72 (i.e. the pilot is closer to 1/57 or so) The problem is that what is considered the "official" size for ships is not consistent with some of the full size cockpit sets. So it seem Bandai basically used a compromise, and scaled the ship to 1/72 based on those numbers, however, they fudged the size of the pilots to look proportional to the full size cockpit sets F
  5. Details look great and seem to have a function as well. Nicely done!
  6. Great work! I really appreciate the cleanness of Trek builds. In many ways it is harder to pull off and get right than weathered stuff
  7. Cool concept and looks like your off to a great start Looking forward to how it turns out
  8. Wow that is some amazing detail. it really comes together with paint and I would never guess it was actually as small as it is
  9. That looks like a pain to decal. You did a great job though
  10. Congrats, I'd be interested in seeing it The 2199 kits are pretty awesome. They have so much stuff to build them in alternate landing configuration, or in flight, bomb bays open, different armament load outs etc... They did make a 1/350 Yamato prior to the 2199 series so I have seen 1/350 Cosmo Zeros and Black Tigers. Very expensive now though. Could also try shapeways maybe?
  11. Using some left over decals I was able to get some marking in it. I also did some more scribing of panels lines. Although I think I might have o repaint part of the area in the arrow on the right side of the tail fin and rescribe. I used a scribing tool to start with, and it left way too wide of a line compared to the rest which I did with an exacto Should be an easy fix, Basically just brush paint the panel line with thinned down paint, then go back over with the xacto You can see here where I started then stopped after realizing it was way too th
