420 Defiant warp nacelle detail-up parts
« on: June 27, 2017, 09:35:57 pm »
Hi All!

Just watched Armondo's fantastic Defiant build on YouTube and was wondering if anyone has seen the detail-up parts for the warp nacelles that he used in his kit. I know there is intrigue regarding the ones he used - and where he got them - I'm not so interested in that as much as I am interested in just getting my sticky paws on the parts. Anybody else seen them?

Thanks everyone!

If it's the NX74205, Don's Light and Magic do these : www.dlmparts.com. I used these for my build.

Thanks for the response, but I already have these. There is another set out there that Armando used that are the greeblies seen BEHIND the warp engine glow. To replicate what is seen in the images from the Christies Auction below...

Ah OK... Not seen those... I'd just PM Armando if it was me! He's Armandodlc on the forums and is quite active.

Could it be these?

That's a cracking bit of kit there! Wish it was available when I built my Deffy!

I'd build another with these bits n bobs if it wasn't such a chore to fill those gaps!

I'm pretty sure these are the parts that Armando used. I'm also pretty sure he did a WIP htread, but it's been a while so it's pretty far down the list by now, but I second the recommendation to PM him about those parts and where he got them.

@Tailgunner - YES indeed my friend! Those are they! But, I don't think EvilDuck is making them anymore... :(

I scratched the interiors of mine side lit them with a 2mm led and used window
screen for the grill material.

What? Made your own? What is this evil of which you speak?  ;D

Very true, that may be the best way to go. Thanks for reminding me that this is why we got into this hobby - being creative.
