1:1400 Nemesis Enterprise E
« on: February 19, 2019, 02:37:36 am »
Ok so since receiving my custom etches and while I finish off the decals and lighting on my refit I have made a start on the enterprise e which I am going to finish as seen in Nemesis.

Here is a picture of my custom etches.



After many many hours of drilling and filing I have managed to complete the windows in the saucer top. I added the extra array of windows to the port side which for some reason do not appear to be moulded on the model. Looks better and is more balanced to as a result. I still have a lot more windows to drill before this project is done!

I have added etches for the transporter emitters upper sensor pallet and conference room windows for now. Pretty happy with it so far.







Still have some tidying up to do around the windows inside and out but well on the way I think!!

Yes, I have a thread in the general area on here asking if anyone wants to buy a set, I have several sets etched up.

This is looking good, Padre!

Love your custom etch stuff!

Would love to see the finished product.

Keep going!

Cheers Steve,

I will post updates as I go along. It will be a bit sporadic at the moment as I have a lot of 3D CAD work on for my model railway company and also real world railway modelling for several shows this year to fit in too. Rest assured though I will shoe horn this in as well!!

Nice installation of the parts.  Looks like a fun model.

To build or not to build.... that is the question.   The answer.... build... Duh.
