Yes, it is pink
« on: October 07, 2012, 04:43:39 AM »
So after a looooong lay off I am finally back to work. Bored on the road I needed to create something so I went and aquired a couple o these

So I basically combined both into these component parts


I will be putting the main parts into the primary hull today, more pics later.

Yep definitely more power. I had originally visualized it as a sort of x wing design but after I got to playing around with the parts she ended up looking like this...

Real men like puppies and are comfortable modeling with pink plastic kits.   ;D

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Wow is it ever great to see you back, Ron and working on a model! Star Trek based to boot!

Fantastic! More power is always a killer idea! She sure looks sleek and fast!

Hey thanks my brothers. It was a long depressing time being laid off and I was way uninspired. Stuff sucks much less now :) ;) ;D :-*. I'll be working in motel rooms again and working on this basic frame for a while but I will keep her going and keep her pink >:D

I'm always amazed at guys like you and Eddie who can transform shapes into something so viable/worthwhile.  The cool thing about this latest concoction of yours, Ron, is that it could be ALL sorts of different things and at different scales: the next Bladerunner "Spinner" (flying cop car) in 1:24 scale or a fast Stellar Frigate in, say 1:600 scale.  I'd like to see this same design in a digital camo finish of black and various greys/gun metals...how much would you charge to build me a second one that I could paint up?

Thanks Paper Master :-* I am honored :)
So there were only six original parts left on the sprues from both original models  >:D
I got it in my head (the voices told me) that I really needed to use every part from both models :icon_beer:
So I had 4 little bladelike things that I added to the tips of the outriggers

That left me with these two big panels (+ two cut off discards)


Keeping with the whole diamondy shape thing I got going I cut and combined them like this


And then installed them like this
