My name is Tag.

This is my entry. The Moebius TOS Colonial Viper. I have ordered the ParaGraphix PE kit and I will be lighting the engines and the cockpit. I am really excited to see what all you guys come up with!

Very nice! Was that just stock rod or did you do any of your own turning?

Worked on the cockpit last couple of days. Paragraphix parts fit really well! Only some minor sanding on the edges so it will fit. I scratched up the surface to show through as wear-and-tear once I paint them. I will start setting up the lighting tomorrow.

Those engines will look amazing with some light coming through.
Looking forward to seeing that picture!

Ok, I need a little clarification, the parts in part 2 are  the same parts from part 1 with the chrome removed? or are they aftermarket parts? Are they from the kit, or are they from another kit? I am seeing wheel hubs or possibly bogey wheels from a tank here. LOL Having never seen the kit, I am clueless or I have had a little too much of the single malt tonight!  ::) I see what your doing with the parts in part 3. Zatharus is being a little confused at this point!
