Hi, Everyone.

Just wanted to let people know that Don's Light and Magic does take special requests when it comes to some of the resin aftermarket parts he offers.

For example, I pulled the trigger and ordered the $40.00 (U.S.D.) DLM-06 TMP Enterprise-A Resin Detail Parts package for the AMT / ERTL 1:537 Enterprise refit / -A kit (www.dlmparts.com/amtrefitreliantparts1537scale.html).  This one usually comes with:

  • Recreation Deck Windows
  • Connection Dorsal Extension
  • Bussard Scoops (2) (Opaque resin, front of Warp Nacelles)
  • Clear Blue Domes for top of bussard Scopes
  • Planetary Sensor Array
  • Bridge and Sensor Dome (opaque resin open slots for lights)
  • Deflector Dish Housing (Opaque resin, snug fit with clear dish fitting inside)
  • Main Deflector Dish (Clear Blue with "ring of dashed lights" detail)
  • Hangar Door Exterior 3D details (Clear Blue)
  • Phaser Emitter "Bumps" for Primary and Engineering Hull (20 on flat resin sheet)
  • Impulse Crystal (Clear blue resin)
  • Photon Torpedo Emitter (Clear Red resin)
  • Homing Becon and Spotlight Array (Clear resin)



However, I did not want the Main Deflector Dish and Impulse Crystal in the clear blue resin.  So I emailed Don and asked if I could get those particular parts in clear.  He replied to my email very quickly and let me know that he could cast those parts in water clear for a few dollars more.  (I just sent him payment for the package, and once it arrives I'll take a picture of the parts for everyone to see.)

For those of you who would rather let the actual lighting component accurately provide color, I'm sure he can do this with any other still-available colored resin parts that he casts himself.  All you have to do is email him with the request.

:)

Hi, Everyone.

I received the DLM-06 TMP Enterprise-A Resin Detail Parts package from Don's Light and Magic (www.dlmparts.com/amtrefitreliantparts1537scale.html).  For my order, I asked that the Navigational Deflector Dish and Impulse Deflection Crystal parts be water-clear instead of the clear-blue color that Don normally casts them in.  He was able to accommodate my request.

Here's what I got and how they look...

All the resin parts:



Instruction sheet:



Primary hull aztec pattern frisket mask template:



Paint guide:



Main Sensor Array details:



Bridge details:







Navigational Deflector assembly:



Space-Energy / Matter Sinks and Magnatomic Amplification Crystals:



Thin sheet of Phaser bumps:



Dorsal extension:



Shuttle door exterior details:



Photon Torpedo Tubes exterior details:



Recreation deck windows:



Formation Light:



Impulse Deflection Crystal (water-clear instead of clear-blue):



Navigational Deflector Dish (water-clear instead of clear-blue):



Navigational Deflector assembly and Dish:



Overall, the parts look very good and offer much-enhanced and accurate details versus their stock counterparts.

Highly recommended for those who are or will be building the AMT / ERTL 1:537 Enterprise refit / -A kit.

:)

NOTE:

Don also wrote up a very detailed build log of his fourth and final model built of the Motion Picture era Enterprises.  It's a 12-part series available for viewing at CultTVman.com:
