Default JTGraphics 1/537 K'Tinga upgrade parts

Last Wonderfest, I found an original, TMP-issue AMT K'Tinga kit, then I went bt JT-Graphics' table and picked up some of his resin upgrade parts for it.

I didn't have the heart to actually build that kit. However, Ibought a Round 2 reissue at the LHS this past Saturday....so now it's time to use those detail parts!

Before I start the build, I thought I'd take some comparison shots of the JT resin alongside the kit parts.

Commentary will be kept to a bare minimum.

Sets reviewed:

JTR-007 K'Tinga/Quonos One Replacement Bridge (opaque) $15
 
JTR-009 K'Tinga/Quonos One Disruptors $8
 
JTR-015 K'Tinga/Quonos One Manifolds $9
 
JTR-016 K'Tinga/Quonos One Replacement Neck $20
 
JTR-038 Klingon 'Bulb' (opaque) $10


(I neglected to get JTR-014 K'Tinga/Quonos One Shuttlebay and Disruptors, but that oversight will be remedied at this next Wonderfest!)

Bridge.

Direct replacement for kit parts 27, 28, 29, 30, and 31. MANDATORY!!!





Disruptors.

Kit lacks disruptors on the underside.




Manifolds.

Direct replacement for kit parts 13, 14, 15, and 16. Surgery needed on 17 and 18:





Neck

Direct replacement for parts 19, 20, 21, 33,and 23, as well as 4:

NOTE - neck has a piece of brass tubing through it for wiring lights. I ORIGINALLY THOUGHT IT WAS SOLID ROD, until I actually read the instructions. Turns out the ends had clay in them. DUH.






Bulb

Direct replacement for kit parts 24 and 25.
