Just like any kit out there, regardless of mfg., one just has to make do with what is there and improve not just the kit but one's skills as well. This, I have seen thru out your thread. I was most impressed when you hit upon mica for window glass. I thought I was the only one to ever do that. I have also used to great effect exposed x-rays and for small flat panes, micro-scope slide glass covers. So as one can see, anything can be overcame besides the way a kit is mfg.d and or the material provided. I also was impressed with the artistic way you approached coppering the bottom. I thought you hit on a outstanding way to do. I for one get tired of the bottoms of ships looking like a new minted penny! But still you did a great job using tape, everyone is now stuck on PE ready made! Now, I have noticed you think outside the lines of the coloring book, so give www.shapeways.com a look. Just see if you see something of interest, ie: gallery bansters.
I have enjoyed your thread and yes, I agree, you took a sows ear and have so far made a silk purse. I am no fan of Constructo, but have seen people do wonders with them.
