Hey guys.
I am fan of Star Trek (as is evident in my username  Grin). I have built a couple of scale models from kits my dad got from the USA. I wanted to ask if anyone else on this forum is into sci-fi related scale modelling. If so, please do share your models here. I am going to put up some pics of the models I have built and short writeups on this thread.
ADMINS: Is this thread in the right board? I think it is more relevant here than anywhere else. Please feel free to move it if you find it necessary.

First up is my model of the K-7 space station. It is this kit http://www.round2models.com/models/amt/k7-space-station. I followed the lighting instructions here: http://www.round2models.com/workbench/lighting-k7 (vaguely) and put 3 red LEDs in. The aluminium stand that came with the base was replaced by a thick plastic tube to run wires through which is why the model is bent on the base  Tongue. I was quite a bit younger and did not know anywhere near as much when I built it. I even used M-Seal to hold up the model and melted in the LED holes  Roll Eyes. It was painted in Light Ghost Grey. I even mucked up the decals and had to get rid of them  Bang Head  :'( It turned out OK in the end. Not great but I am satisfied for what I think was my first model.

Next is one of the better models I have made: a Romulan Warbird. This is one of the biggest, most heavily armed ships in the Star Trek Universe. It was built from this kit: http://www.round2models.com/models/amt/romulan-warbird/product and I took a few liberties with the paint jobs. The warp engines glow in the dark. I have included picture of my model, the kit box and the Warbird as feature in the Star Trek show. A battle damage effect on the Warbird was created by putting a small drop of Fevibond (rubber based adhesive) on the model and lighting it up. I got this tip from http://www.starshipmodeler.com/ a great resource for sci-fi scale building.

Thank you sir. I think Star Trek: TOS was really great. I have seen seasons 1 and 2, recently got the box set of season 3. I liked the Next Generation too and I think the USS Enterprise-E was one of the coolest ships ever built. My dream is to build a fully lit model with LED and sound Quantum Torpedo effects.
