I assume that the kit was permanently mounted to the wood base first and you then drilled from the top down. Are there points on the kit for mounting lights? The underside of the base...

Fantastic.

I would sooner post stuff here than on Bookface or whatever its called.

It would be great to post pictures.

Is there anyway though, that doing a quote would only quore the text and leave the picture in the original post... so you don't get long thread of mostly the same picture.

Great game on.

Jen would not do a model.. She just enjoys seeing finished ones.

Is there a ladies section in starship eg ... "but I still have not heard from BLoSSM," and " Rule 9) Members of BLoSSM"

that Jen should join ?
