Don't give up! Great work thus far! if you have trouble finding a replacement part, just let me know. I have a 11 / 14 hundred scale enterprise see that I was planning on building soon, however, I would be happy to loan you the top saucer so you can get it in time!

Well thought I had it fixed but the more I looked I could see the warp not only was the top warped but the bottom was as well and I tried again to heat and bend but it would not get better and the bottom is thinner then the top and it will melt. So here is the new plan battle damage but not a enterprise still plus I am not going to buy this kit again to get the saucer (and get a warped one again) still sticking with plan for top secret ship but now it will have seen action.

Making damage inside and painted first coat on engine had some paint come off the engine but touching up should be fine hope it does not do that on the main parts I will see soon how the wicked color paints hold up

Almost done with the top paint job the bottom won't be as hard to do.

Just a little more to do need one full day to finish hope to have the time. Anyway tried to mask of the bussard collector but it didn't work so good but I think I can still pull it off. As for the top and bottom of the saucer i am  just about done. Next I need to finish painting life pods and some touching up here and there and one other thing at the bottom. Also I have to Make  my own mask for the name can't wait to do that.
