The ends of the nacelles have quite an ugly join on the inside which would be quite difficult to smooth out.
I got around this by inserting a piece of tube into each after blanking off the internal end. Looks much better. I'm going to look in my spares to find something to add into each to make it a bit more visually interesting.
And finally glued the nacelles to the wings. Quite the gap!
Looking around for references I found this page which has some very nice high-res scans of plans published several years after AMT first produced the kit. BoP
Lots of interesting features like shuttle bay doors, impulse engines and wing mounted missile tubes can be seen. All of which should be easy to replicate and add more detail to the bland surface of the model.
I first made up the shuttle doors from some thin plasticard. A simple 10x20mm rectangle which looked about right. I also scribed in some panel lines running from each corner of the hull to the corner of the bridge dome.
Today's plan is to get the impulse drive built and nacelles filed and blended to the wings.
Added another alien ship to the fleet, Monograms Kazon Raider. Still factory sealed! This is a really nice kit looking at the plastic, well detailed and quite a good size. Only downside is the lack of clear plastic parts for the engines, a mistake they also made with the Maquis fighter. A shame as their Voyager has lots of clear parts for windows and engines.
