I have a thing for 1/350 ships, don't ask me why - I have no idea, but 1/700 would be so-o much cheaper! :-\

yep.  that's my reason for getting back into ships in the smaller scale

Thanks Fellas

How about a small hole in the ice with some seals and a polar bear? They would have to be pretty tiny.

haha Polar bears had crossed my mind

As a fan of 50's Science Fiction and of flying saucer shapes, this gets a thumbs up!
One of the meany reasons I like to print in ABS (or HIPS, which is styrene) is that the leftover parts (supports, base, etc.) can be used as a part or melted in acetone of Tamiya Extra Thin to make styrene putty.

If anyone in the US wants some, PM me your address and I'll send a small box. I have about half a pound of ABS waste sitting around. I can always make more...
I found some plastic salad plates at the discount store that were polystyrene. Two of them glued face to face made a great saucer shape. I've found a few plastic cups and things that were PS. Your right, PEP is far more common. If the object doesn't have the recycling markings I can usually tell the two plastics apart. PS is more rigid while PEP is more flexible and has that slick feel to it.

Well it looks like I might have actually finished something!

Thanks to The Big Gimper for the refueling probe. It adds a nice touch.

Only two hours work but it was like pulling teeth to get to it. A little bit of bench clearing did help. The X-29 is very glossy right now but I'll wait for warm weather to spray it flat outdoors. Stinks to much in the house otherwise.
