I thought you'd cracked it and I'd just been really stupid! Alas no, I typed the resistor color code wrong. The one I'm using is brown red brown gold. I've checked the polarity of the legs over and over! This makes no sense, right? It's not just me is it? You could always scrap the resistor and try...

Instructions for the 1:1000 Constitution MKII decals?

The Section 31 ones. Anyone have them at all?

I've misplaced the instructions. Don't want to put any decals in the wrong place.

Decals for the Motion picture era kit.

Can anybody scan in high resolution and upload the decal sheet for this kit for me please? I bought it recently and unfortunately the decals for the Enterprise saucer section tore when I was applying them. All the other decals went on fine. I've got a 3-enterprise kit arriving in the next few days, ...

As far as the material for casting your grill I don't really have any suggestions or info other than I have heard that small batches of water clear polyurethane resin can be a bit tricky to mix up correctly so maybe consider mixing a larger amount than you need to get the ratio right the first time...

I know nothing about resin, other than it's more expensive than styrene and the only type of glue that works for it is super glue. Evergreen Scale models does have styrene sheets with different sized grill patterns. www.evergreenscalemodels.com It's not the pattern of the grille that's in question ...

You might want to get a piece of sheet styrene that has a grill pattern and cut out a grill then use it to make a mold for a resin grill, that way you wouldn't have to deal with any puttying any cracks. The nacelle grilles have curves that will be nigh-on impossible to replicate with flat sheet sty...

Simplest way to duplicate 1:677 Voyager nacelle grille?

Some of the glue joints were extremely stubborn and it's resulted in minor (albeit easily fixable with putty) damage to the model. However, the clear nacelle grilles...
