    Everything I’ve seen on the upper saucer bow light, shows it being there but not lit up. There was a (long, long, long gone)site that someone talked about it. Saying it was a hole to fish wire through. The best proof is to go through each of the original E shots and look for it lit up. Since it would use the same light source as the bow lights, it would be easy to tell. Any real proof was lost when the SSM was trashed(I mean restored).

    I fill it on all my E models, I think it’s unsightly. But then guys like to weather it as well (and put those damn grids on it). Which is like asking a guy in the 16th century to weather a B-17. No starship will weather like an airplane.

    I agree with you Max it does look as you put it unsightly, and I always fill it in on my models as well. If you think about it all the “windows” on the E are either painted black to represent a unlit window or they are backlit. This so called “window” is neither painted black, or ever lit on the show. So I reassert there was never a window there, it was simply a light access cover that was painted hull color. There may be pics of the E with the cover off which people mistake as a window but it was not. No one will ever come up with a screen cap from the series showing the mystery window because it did not exist. It always appears that there is nothing there, its hard to even see the access cover. I also agree about the abomination, er restoration, I think Ed Miarecki should have been flogged for what he did to the E. The NASM needs to have Steve bring the old girl back to her original glory!

    P.S. While Steve was at it he could make a new cover and get rid of that erroneous window. ; )

    Steve, regarding the shuttlebay doors on the Reliant, could you make a plug that fits into the interior, but has closed doors on the outside, so that when the plugs are inserted, the doors look closed, but when removed, the doors look open?

    Also, I know you’re thinking about buying a nice Canon DSLR to replace that crappy Sony you’re having trouble with, but it seems to me that you’ve been having trouble with your cameras for a while. Is it possible airborne contaminants like paint or sanding debris is clogging the focus sensors on the Sony and previous cameras? If so, then any camera you get will suffer from this problem and I’d hate to see you blow money on a Canon T3i (the one with the articulated viewscreen) only to have it crap out on you after a year.

    Thanks for sharing your hard work!

    I’d love to see you build a TOS Miranda, always thought it would be neat. (I’m the one that made that comment on youtube) I think a Constellation class done like that would be neat as well, but would require cannibalizing two kits.
