  1. Jim,

    The best way to handle the group is through email.  So I'm putting together an email list of the folks who are going to be involved with the proposal.  This will allow you to follow along and contribute if you wish.  Please forward me an email address for you and I'll add you to the list if you wish.  Mine is shipmodeler@sbcglobal.net

    This your first MODEL? I would be intimidated as heck. Good luck and I'll follow along.

    Flagship Models publishes an excellent "how to" CD that walks the beginner through the entire process. Check it out at: http://www.flagshipmodels.com/zencart/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=8&products_id=135
  6. The second I saw that photo I thought, "looks like Michael Rennie". GREAT likeness.

    Forced Perspective

    Quite a unique idea and presentation.
  8. " My personal practice, and the only way I'd deal with them is that if I can't walk into MIM's store and pick something off the shelf, I'll go elsewhere. " Funny how word gets around when you do someone wrong. Karma?
  9. My next question was going to be,"Is a pod included"? Thanks for reading my mind. I wasn't aware there was any extra kits available.
  10. Please post pics of the finished model. I am very curious about this one and may purchase if it's designed well.
  11. I watched 2001 just last night. It will make a nice display.

    I really think the NCC is on the right proactive track. Let's not attempt to fix a problem until it arises.

    Maybe it's me, but I don't get it and fail to see the difference with the exception of the materials used. A "plastic" model made by the big boys is designed on a computer. A 3D printed model is designed on a computer. The big boys drawings are downloaded into a CNC machine via computer. Same process is done by the 3D modeler at home or by a vendor who produces the parts. The "tool/mold" for a "plastic" model is machined by CNC by a computer from stainless steel. A "mold/tool" for a 3D printed model (if you wanted to reproduce it) is created by the modeler from RTV rubber. Both models are assembled by the modeler using virtually the same techniques.
