Yeah, I know... Design a ton of stuff but never actually build anything. Well, not this time! These are the first printed parts from the Kelvinprise conversion I've been designing. There's an in-progress thread over at StarshipModeler.com. The parts will convert the 1/1000 Moebius Kelvin into a Kelvinprise, the way the JJ-Prise should have looked, in my not so humble opinion.

The second batch of parts are printing now and will hopefully arrive in a week or two. Then, she'll get built up. I'm thinking of some names, preferably people or events from America's space history given the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission (although Apollo 8 will always be my favorite Apollo mission). Maybe Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Eagle, Columbia, Intrepid, America, Odyssey, Lovell, Shepard, Owen Maynard, Thomas Kelly, etc. Owen Maynard was Canadian, but was pivotal in the design of the LEM; without he and this fellow Canadian Avro engineers, Apollo wouldn't have run as smoothly as it did, and their contributions are often overlooked.

Anyway, thanks for looking, and there are more pics linked through the SSM page.

PS. If you have an imgur account, this will probably show you the entire album with the design iterations. I'm also working in a separate saucer for those who don't want to sacrifice an entire Moebius kit for just the saucer, and a rollbar or two.

Sorry about that. They can be viewed by using the links in the SSM thread. I'm not a fan of imgur; I liked how Photobucket used to work.

Just doing some test fitting and hitting things with a wash to bring out a few panel lines. The next batch of parts should hopefully ship on Monday. The wait is really hurting!

They're saying tomorrow, if the tracking is right. Let's hope! I wanna get this puppy done! Does anyone have recommendations for aftermarket JJ-Prise era decals? There don't seem to be any that I can find.

I don't know about JJ-Prise era decals. I just go with the standard TOS, such as sold by PNT on Federation Models.

Default Re: Kelvinprise

Thanks! I'll look into them.

The parts all came. And... I've already broken one! Its the attachment piece that interfaces the neck with the Kelvin saucer. Ugh...Half of it went flying off someplace at warp speed, these parts are so brittle. Currently searching for it. If I can't find it, I'll have to reorder that piece and the nacelle glowy inserts which are too large for the nacelles for some odd reason. I'll post pics as soon as the parts all dry off and the cats get less curious. That's all I need!

Shapeways says the replacement parts are in production. Let's hope they move fast! Currently starting work on the nacelles.

Construction begins! There are some Kelvin parts there to show sizing and scale differences. The after shuttle bay part and the deflector dish install into the hull parts to help them maintain their shape while the rubber bands compress them together and the glue sets.
