    Hey Steve, I can’t believe all that stuff is going to fit in there- wow- what a job! Its looking incredible, that’s for sure. I was wondering about that hangar deck fitting in there and think it was probably not designed to be in a lit up kit so to replace the floor was a great idea.
    It does look as well that Paul’s PE parts were meant to go with the kit’s original parts and not Don’s parts, and that the hangar deck wasn’t meant for a kit being lit up but wow you are making it work. Incredible…

    Steve, I don’t know if this will be of any use to you or not, but in the electrical trade when we are pulling a bundle of wires into a conduit, we use a product called Yellow 77 to help the wires slide easier through the conduit. It may also help when you have to pull in a few extra wires that are forgotten into a pipe that’s already near capacity instead of pulling it in dry. Ive seen it at places like Home Depot in tubes and a little bit would last a life time when doing short runs.
    Also, I believe that the pearlescent effect on the Enterprise was dulled out for Wrath of Khan. I have a 350 Refit I plan on doing as the 1701-A from Undiscovered Country and the pearlescent effect was barely noticeable it seemed.
    Thanks for sharing your tips ‘n tricks for everyone to benefit from. Keep up the stellar work!

    For mixing body filler you would be better off with something like this: http://www.amazon.com/U-POL-Layered-Mixing-Palette-Sheets/dp/B0038D39KE. You just mix the filler on it and when you are done you just tear off that sheet.
    The next time I make a mold I am going to mix up some extra silicone and make a 4-6 inch diameter pad just for mixing small batches of filler.
