Default Northstar/DeBoer USS Reliant 1/260th Scale Rebuild.

Well more of a repair/rework/rebuild from a part started kit and all gone over in detail on the website page:

http://www.ianlawrencemodels.com/wipdeboerreliant.html

Long story short, in part payment for the DeBoer Refit to do with as I please. After a fair amount of Zen modeling, it's a keeper to do the above mentioned repair/rework/rebuild thing on. Bottom line, pristine Reliant with full pearl paint and lighting...at least that's the plan.

Thread pics!
The main bulk parts.
Top hull and this bit alone is some 25 and a bit inches long. The finished item will be some 3 feet long.



Bottom bit.



Nacelles, one finished and one still in two halves with the pylon attached.



The bits that came with it.







The paperwork of course.



Decals and part of the masking set by Aztek Dummy.



So what's right with this kit: It's a bastard big Reliant and the surface detailing is fairly crisp.

So what's wrong with this kit: Many inaccuracies that shall have to get sorted. The saucer edge has the same 1/4" too deep problem the Refit has, the warp grilles on the engine nacelles are wrong same as the Refit, the smaller side grilles at the front of the nacelles are wrong since they are the same parts as on the Refit...I could go on but those are the fundamental problems. It's all in the link at the top.

This will get tackled at a time yet to be decided upon, wish me luck if you will...I expect i'll need all I can get but I've made up my mind to have a go and I will do just that.

Luck has nothing to do with it, it's all in those magic fingers of yours Ian.

We'll see gang. It'll try to make some inroads to this and the Refit over the Christmas period. Dropping the hull height is going to be the biggest thing as from that comes everything else but I have plans to minimise the amount of farting about required.

Read that as going from a metric shit tonne of fun down to a couple of hundred kilos or so...I hope.

As soon as there's something to report, including me being carted of to the Federation funny farm, it will appear here!
