Good morning!
« on: June 11, 2013, 05:30:55 am »
 Hello!   I'm Mark,  residing in  the D.C. area.   I've been away from sci fi  modeling for some time,  but am excited to get back into this genre.  I  came across this site  while preparing to build the 1/350 TOS E.  I  have two,  the first  getting the full treatment as a  gift for my wife.

I look forward to hanging with you all,  happy modeling!

Well, we had our first crisis moment...I asked her if she wanted a pilot or production version, and she said she wanted it painted chrome, with more lights.

I did what anyone with my degree of AMS would do, and blinked rapidly.  Was this the woman I married?  Yes. 

I told her I couldn't paint it chrome, but she noticed the inside was already painted chrome for light blocking...

I let it slide for a few days, in the meantime we started watching TOS on blu-ray.  Last night she finally came around and said "after watching the series again, I realize I have to have it painted like on TV, it just wouldn't be right to bling it up."

Thank God I dodged that marital bullet!  Of course it won't be completely canon, as I will be installing nacelle lights on hers.  When I get around to mine, it will be a more pure version I can assure you.
