Nice, what's the scale there? Plastic or resin? Did you scratch build?

Do the canopies open up for internal viewing??

Ineedhelp- Terran Empire eh? I'd like a model of the Enterprise E, by far my favorite of the Trek ships. Though I do like the NX-01.

Sanguine - my favorite's not on there. They are all hot and all, but Petra is better.

Does slapping them together with superglue then sticking firecrackers in them or shooting them count?

Nice.....where do you find models of airlineers? I've been looking for something other than warbirds to build.

That said....I haven't built anything for 10 years.

I just HAD to make it the Terran Empire version. Always did have a soft spot for the "Evil Universe"



Very VERY nice work guys......I am impressed with the attention to detail in a lot of these models.

Thanks.

I pretty much exclusively build commercial airliners. I used to be into modern fighters and ships, mostly because commercial models were hard to find, but not so much anymore. Minicraft Models had a great selection of commerical aircraft, nice kits and they fit together really well. I wouldn't recommend Revell USA, pretty cheap kits that don't go together all that well. I have a stock of about 7 airliners waiting for me to build, but I haven't in so long.

Here is the minicraft website, you can also find good stuff at Hobbytown USA.

My wife did this scratch built Petra out of paper mache' for my son's 1st grade class. They had a multicultural night at the school. My son's class did Jordan. Petra is an ancient city carved out of a rock mountian side in Jordan.

Wow, that's some nice work.

I'd love to see Petra in person, wanted to ever since I saw Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Link Posted: 5/20/2005 5:22:10 PM EST
Yep. I have way too many to build in 3 lifetimes. I'm going to sell some & buy more EBR stuff.
