Romulan Battle Cruiser
« on: December 22, 2017, 12:31:16 pm »
 I have built earlier versions of this kit a couple times, that being said I don't remember the earlier versions having so many fit issues, I had to do a lot of mods to get this thing together and it almost hit the trash can or the parts bin several times, but I pressed on (thanks Spencer) didn't give up and did the putty/sand/prime dance for what has seemed like an eternity.
 
 I am almost ready for paint and final assembly...god willing :)

 I am planning on remaking those stupid vent grills that are supposed to be recessed out of sheet styrene , I built some prototypes out of cards I had laying around, my evergreen order should be here tomorrow hopefully.. now I just need to come up with a decent paint scheme

 here is where she sits now

Your welcome! Looks good so far.

It's basically impossible to get styrene around here in rural WV.
No model shops and the nearest big hobby store carries none.
I almost resorted to ordering some online, but just whittled the vents down till they fit okay.

My kit had a fair amount of flash and some alignment problems also.
I actually got too much cement into the pylon/main hull joints, and ... let's just say I had some
problems.  ;)

@Rocky, what is the scale and maker of this beastie?

I'd recommend trying to find a plastics supplier, the sort that sells acrylic sheeting. It's quite possible they actually have styrene sheet in stock, albeit in considerably larger sizes.

There's one here in Denver near where I work that I'll have to stop in and see what the styrene listed on their website actually looks like.
