New guy from Seattle
« on: September 28, 2016, 05:05:14 pm »
I'm a long time figure model builder looking to switch gears and build the 1/350 refit. I'm definitely looking at painting this as a learning experience since I've used acrylics and not enamels and lacquers before. Been watching Boyd's YouTube build of the refit and learned a few things already. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions for you guys! 8)
Sir, may I take your Trident?

Right on! Welcome aboard, and don't hesitate to ask questions here someone will have answers guaranteed. You wont find a more respectful easy going group of modelers out there than you will here. The only real thing to keep in mind is post your progress pics, we love seeing them! Again, welcome!

Welcome to the Boards, Ruprekt!

There are a few figure builds going on right now, if you are interested! Would love to see some of your work, if you're willing!

Don't be afraid to ask questions here (I ask more than my fair share!) as the people here have great knowledge and experience to freely share!

Good luck on the build and have fun!

Be happy to show some of my work. Where are the figure builds you're speaking of, and where would I post my work?

There are a bunch floating around in the Members Work in Progress WIP thread board, and in the Model Gallery thread board. There is also a board to post all things non-scifi related. SFMA has been around for a few years now, and there are tons of things hiding out in the boards at this point. Good luck and happy hunting!

Welcome to the Boards, Ruprekt!

LOL. The screen name and avatar are awesome. That scene never fails to get me in tears of laughter.

Welcome Ruprekt! Jump right in and fire away with the questions when you need to. The Refit is a very popular kit to build, but also a very challenging kit. Plenty of advice and encouragement is always available here.

Welcome aboard Ruprekt! Jump right in and have fun.....ask any question's you need to. Plenty of us have done the refit and we have felt what you will feel.....all the way along.
  One small piece of advice. When you approach the big guy, don't try and look at the big picture all at once. It'll drive you crazy. Take one thing at a time.....the arboretum, the shuttle bay, etc. Treat each one as a project of its own. Take pride in how great it looks, then move on the next thing. Before you know it you'll find that you've made big progress in that big picture!  ;)

Oh...and post lost of pictures!
