  1. Very interesting Pete! Does the Gorilla glue melt the foam? Does it give a good bond when dry? Bill
  2. Very interested to see how this comes out! Bill
  3. Superb - really excellent weathering, looks just right. Regards, Bill
  4. Astounding work! The paint chipping and weathering is truly superb! Regards, Bill
  5. Excellent work Pete! This really came out looking very nice - such wonderful results from odd bits and pieces. Regards, Bill
  6. Thank you for having a look, I do appreciate the kind comments. Bill
  7. Well done! Intriguing what wonderful things can be done with 3D printing. Bill
  8. Hello Pete - Really amazing how you conjure up these little gems from repurposed spare parts and odd bits. Looking forward to seeing this creation with some primer soon. Regards, Bill
  9. Really excellent, especially from such an old kit. Bill
  10. Many thanks! I have waited for this to come out in a styrene kit for decades. Overall it is a very good kit and a pleasure to build. Endless opportunities for super detailing. Regards, Bill
  11. Thank you! Most of this kit comes together very well, just a few small problems. Lighting not too difficult, I ended up using a total of 24 LED's. Unfortunately, much of the effort on detailing the cockpit can't really be seen. Coming up with sturdy display stands and a proper base was one of the bigger challenges. Good luck with your build, please share photos! Regards, Bill
  12. Plenty of room in this kit for lighting. The engine section is ideal for a battery as the top can snap into place to allow access. I went with an external power adapter primarily because I wanted a remote control which will slowly drain a battery even when switched off. Difficult to see the cockpit, but the pod bay is easily viewed, especially with two of the doors open. Thanks, Bill
  13. Yes! Of course, I should have thought the same thing. That is exactly what is happening. Good call!
  14. Thanks for having a look and commenting! Please have a look also at the finished model in Ready for Inspection - https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235094044-moebius-1144-discovery-xd-1/ Some final WIP images - Display case off Display case on Engines. apologies for the poor image. Command sphere as see through display case. Set up for photography. Black felt cloth and "planets". Photos of completed model taken with very old Canon S200 in low light with flash turned off which required that camera be braced (no tripod). Only half of the images taken were usable. Side by side with TimeSlip Creations XD-1. The Moebius kit is about 41 inches in length, a bit more with a pod extended. The TimeSlip Creations is just under 60 inches. The completed segments of this kit are shown dry fitted together in this image, no primer or paint. I have kept this kit partially built in storage until I can find a place to display it properly.
