Helo_Dud Posted October 17, 2009 Share Posted October 17, 2009 Hello fellow modelers :lol: I thought Iâ€™d introduced myself first, my name is Joe Szczygiel, the last name is pronounced â€œseagullâ€. Anyhow I thought Iâ€™d like to join you guys in this build. I received this kit from a great friend as a gift which he traded off a few kits and was so kindly enough to give me. Thanks Arnie! I also like to thank Sean Holliday for some extra decals, jets and 2 great books. For my entry Iâ€™m building the Tamiya 1/350th USS Enterprise. I started it last weekend researching it and reading a few books. The Enterprise will be built during the late 80â€™s. I started of detailing the island structure using stretched sprue and bits of evergreen plastic. The decks rails are Gold Medal Models, another gift from Arnie which he had some extras laying around. Most of the reference Iâ€™m going by came from the Detail & Scale USS Enterprise vol. 39. Most of the book covers her in the late 80â€™s so I feel safe. Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™ll miss many things due to itâ€™s size and my overall lack of knowledge. This will be my second ship built. My first was Dragons 1/350th Ticonderoga . I built that ship out of box and scratch built the railings using Evergreen rod and stretched sprue. USS Ticonderoga Here is were Iâ€™m at this moment of time. Hull seam filled with stretched sprue. Iâ€™m looking forward to seeing the many progress postings you guys have to offer. Happy Modeling, Joe S. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
