Subject: Re: [FT] I have more ships

I've put together a couple of Starblazer minis before. Note: you will
not use all of the photo etched pieces. I think the most I put on was 8,
but some might take more. There should be  an instruction/diagram sheet
with each ship. If you need additional reference got to: . I held the p-e piece with
tweezers and put accelerator on it, then put glue on the mini. 

The Minerva-like NAC ship is the Miyazaki DD (OOP), and, no, it only has
one 'wing'.

As for info on Starblazers, someone else will have to help you. I
haven't seen the show... yet, I am trying to find someplace that rents
the videos before I break down and buy them.

It is caffeine alone that sets my mind in motion.
It is through the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed,
     that hands acquire shakes,
     that shakes become a warning.
It is caffeine alone that lets me roll the dice.
