Hey everyone
« on: June 10, 2017, 11:59:12 pm »
Haven't assembled a kit in 20 years.  Newly significantly widowed.  Love Trek modeling. I was there when it all began.  Wonderful memories seeing that floating city fly by.  Just looking, reading, commissioning, looking and reading and, now that I'm alone at almost 62, trying to decide what I want my life to be.  Glad to be here.

Tiburon,

Hi.  I might tackle my Moebius J2.  I've had it for three years.  I'm open on suggestions on good aftermarket parts.  I'm hedging, though.  I s___ at airbrushing,  LOL.

Welcome to the board!

The J2 is a hell of a kit to jump into if you haven't done any modeling in 20 years!
If you don't plan to light it then it isn't too bad! But, if you plan to light it then it can be a real hair puller! You might want to consider something else to cut your teeth on!!

Just my opinion!!

What would you suggest, maybe the Vulcan shuttle and warp sled?  That would seem pretty straightforward.

I think that's a good idea, and I like the Vulcan shuttle.  Thank you.
