Did anyone watch the orville tonight? it's a kind of spoof or homage to the original star trek and / or Galaxy Quest, which was entertaining enough tosh, if a little unsure of what it wanted to be. it did have a rather nice McGuffin in one of the final scenes, SPOILER a small model of the Wilbur and Orville Wright flyer ....
A quick weekend build of JPG Productions' new Galaxy Quest 1:72 Scale Surface Shuttle. A simple kit with 13 cast resin parts, the largest being the base. The Shuttle parts are nicely cast and quite thin. The 6 main shuttle parts go together well with only a small amount of filler needed. So after about 2-3 hours of work over the weekend I ended up with this. Thanks for looking.

I was putting off starting this build as I thought I would be daunted with it. Turns out I should not have worried. Never Give Up! Never Surrender! Not too many bits Huge locating pins Quick assembly Cool stand So it turns out this is more of a snap together kit, which is great as I currently have a huge bought of AMS happening with my other builds. I hit some parts with paint so I don't have to worry about too much masking and started to install some of the clear parts So the fit is pretty good ( for a snap fit). I will have to attend to a few seams with putty. The build should progress fairly quickly, the longest part will be the sanding and painting I think.
