Haha! I was disappointed that no one had commented on that!

I was considering upgraded lazers but changed my mind. It's not easy to find those phaser parts these days. I would like to make my own, if I ever get the time.

Oh heck, I have no idea at this point. It's been a while since I bought it. Someone on ASAP, back in it's heyday. I think I got one from someone on the RPF last year.

I have SOOOOO many projects and kits I will never get done with them all. I collect projects, as it were.

I see you have some progress to report!

That's something I need to talk to you guys about - I was thinking three items on the sheet:

Our names/callsigns *
N-Numbers **
Squadron Insignia ***



* Names/Callsigns: Three sets per person, in the same style as those on the kit decal sheet but maybe a more 'Galactica' style font. I'd have to run a sign-up sheet here of some kind to get that straightened out.

** N- or Registry Numbers - as on the high engine of TNS Vipers, mine for instance would be something like N1055RI - all of 'em ending in RI - Romeo India?

*** As below, in color as well as subdued




I still haven't yet but I was thinking of asking JTGraphics if he'd do 'em - he has a similar sheet already and so he's certain to have all the right fonts?

Opinions?

All of that sounds cool,

Maybe for registry numbers we could have the N and RI, and then a bunch of numbers that way we could make our own, thinking there would have to be at least 2 per number (ie 2 1s, 2 2s, etc), though I don't know how much that would increase the cost of the decal sheet.

That'd be 'bout the only way to do it - thanks for pointing that out!


Also, I wish we could figure out what our RI 'Member Number' is - THAT would be a cool thing to do!


I was leaning toward 'not' adding Battlestar names to the sheet - it'd surely add to the cost and besides JT already sells such a sheet....

All of this sounds great. I like the idea of figuing out what our RI numbers would be. Is there a way to find out what number member we are here? (Mech?)

What is that insignia from? Looks like an iron-on patch.

Don't forget about a small decal of the RI logo. I'd like to stick that on too.

It's actually a slightly obscure American military patch. They're inexpensive, readily available, and comes in subdued as well as full-color.

Precedent: The Special Forces patch used as the Silver Spar Squadron logo.

Workin on mine right now, Scribing the panal lines in just on the tops of the two side wings and the top wing, and the fuselage. Not gonna go crazy on the rest.


On a side note Cat, I did order those panals for the cockpit lighting. But the guy didnt ship them untill i sent him a msg asking where they were... conveniently they went out today...

I also ordered from SSM the masks and one of the decal sheets for some stuff I wanted off of it.

Those masks are tempting me too! If they're the ones I'm thinking about - you can end up painting TWO vipers with one set of masks? Positives on one and negatives on the other?

I'm also looking forward to your opinion of the panels!
