Couldn't resist doing a quick and dirty recreation of this scene now that I have the models:



Someday I'll do a better job with some kind of supports that can be photoshopped out easily.

Marina has aged extremely well.

Gates is also looking pretty good for 67.

Started on a 1:1000 scale Romulan Bird of Prey.

The top of the model matches the studio prop really well but the front does not, so to make the ports match up it means attaching lots of little bits.

So, tiny drills and tiny rods of styrene are in, hope they look OK once sanded down and painted.

Still torn between the 2 colors on the test pieces, the left is aluminum over gloss white, the right is aluminum over royal light gray.

Those white rods are 0.040 inches in diameter:

Some light sanding to even them out is the most I can do tonight, going to have to wait another day or 2 for the glue to fully harden up before really working on the pegs.

Well, it's got a projector as well as a large touch screen display, so maybe not too overpriced.
I'd get one if it wasn't so darn big, it's almost a foot square.

If it projected a random episode of TNG or DS9 from a hard drive, then I think it would be worth the money :o

Turns out it wasn't a real product anyway, it was one of their April fools joke items.  Take out the projector and make it a regular alarm clock and they probably would sell a ton of them at $30 or so...
