You sir, are my hero.

Love it all, but the aluminum core is freakin' awesome! I really need to get 'metal savvy'.

A bit more progress on the studio scale Klingon- bird of prey I'm working on. Here's some pictures of the wing tip guns.
I used solder to join the brass parts together.

What kit is this and where do you get it? This is the first I've seen of this monster.

Studio scale Klingon- Bird Of Prey update,
This is what you start out with for the neck , and the second picture is what I ended up with once I'd poured glue all over the parts and just rolled them together.....(Obviously I'm joking)
I added the parts in front of the tube myself to make the area a bit more "busy" looking.





Vidar you can get this kit from http://www.nicenmodeldesigns.com/

BOP,
Here's one of the first parts of the lighting that needs doing on this and the results after bit of soldering and gluing.
It's much redder in real life

Found out where to get one. Have a sizable bonus coming this month, but I don't think the wife will let me spend $3,700 of it on a model kit. :-(
