Modelers Questions Board / Re: Tulip Fabric Paint

It can't really be sanded as far as I've seen.  It's way to flexible for that.  It sort of ends up being like a rubber texture after it dries.   They do have different colors of the stuff though.  I have black and white for my work.   I use it to glob onto the insides of LED's.  Really quick and easy.    You can use it on the outside of the model but I would use it sparingly. 

It's definitely good to have in your took kit for sure.    They make different size bottles too.  Just get a small bottle of white and see what you think.   It should actually work pretty well for the seams of the saucer if it is kind of pushed in there and made smooth before it sets up. 

If nothing else just use it for extra light block inside your next model.

Thanks Guys.

Mad - It will be lit and all the bits 'n' bobs are on their way now and Gerry/HDA has just let me know the photo etch set is on it's way. I am still toying with asking Randy if I could just get the resin EVA suits that are included in one of his upgrade sets but I am not too bothered about that TBH. And you're right in that Randy designed it and then Pegasus marketed it.

Just got to figure out the colours for this one which may be a white or light grey overall and I am going to try out the Alclad matt white I have bought for my 1/350 refit to see how that turns out.

Might be a bit of an awkward build due to the size of the model but I am sure it will be fun and really looking forward to getting started after two false starts on other kits and a general feeling of "I can't face another build just now" but this beast has peaked my interest and it will be fun. I had a good look to see if anyone had built one on the forum before but couldn't see anything which was also a wee bonus for me as it is something different. Looking ahead to the eventual base and did think of having a Martian type base but I think I will just get a quality round base when the time comes.

I hope you all enjoy the build. :)

Thanks Scottminimum.  That connector brings the wires down the to the base which I have yet to start.  I will at some point I hope.

I've ordered from them in the past and received the product within the week.  I know people who have waited months for an order.  Guess I was lucky, or it's because I ordered during a discount period so he was probably actively watching it at that time.

So here's an update of sorts.  I've emailed Orbital Drydock 3 times asking for information regarding my shipment.  No response.  Their website is active and they have stock of the paint masks I ordered.  I don't get it.  :-\

Cool project Iain! I'll be watching for sure

I didn't know about this line of kits from Pegasus until now. I always thought that the MLEV was a kit on his website but after I actually read the blurb from it, I realised he has created parts for it. So, he designed the MLEV but sold them to Pegasus who then kitted it from there?

Anywho, it's certainly a unique change from the standard subjects! I almost feel a bit silly asking this, but are you going to light it? Would be a shame not to.... ::) just saying

Bring forth your size comparison shots to the masses !!  ;D

wow, please do post some pics of the pieces so we can get a picture of its size!

Will do - going to have to clear the work area a bit just to get some room to take pictures.

paint coming along nicely, but wholly crap that's a lot of wires!  Wow!  What is going to be wired to the connector?  Do tell, do tell!
