    Hey now, fellow Canadian pinheads, can anyone in this group paint like this? My Borg ship sucks and I need help since I have no artistic abilities. Here are examples of what I am looking for....This looks awesome!

    Thanks!

    I got Brock's old STTNG and he did an amazing job with the Borg ship shown in the link above along with the rest of the game he tricked out.

    The second link you posted is none other than our own "REVOLUTION" member's artistic creativity. Maybe shoot him a message and see if he'd be interested in offering his service?

    OH! Damn, sorry Paul... you PM'd me about this earlier.

    Go here and buy the Pinbits windows in Blue or Green (I prefer Green.. more Borg-like)

    http://www.pinbits.com/index.php?main_p ... 0h2idrlnk5

    Once you have that, send me a box with your old ship + the Pinbits windows (I'll PM you my address).

    In the meantime, get LED flashers in the same colour as the windows. Whether you're a fan of LED's or not, this is one of the coolest mods you can do to this game... plus the LED's won't melt your Borg ship even further.

    The problem is/was, flashers aren't meant to be constantly lit (ie. the way the are during Borg multiball). When they are constantly lit, they heat up like a mo-fo...

    Hey Brock, thanks so much dude, this ship is going to look great! It is a real eye sore right now, and putting stickers on it has not helped the look at all :(

    I installed the Cointaker LED kit as soon as I got the STTNG back in April. Actually I pretty much LED every PIN I have purchased with a Cointaker kit as soon as I can to reduce the heat in the game etc.

    I have ordered the blue acrylic windows from pinbits and will let you know when its in and the ship is ready to go.

    I also wanted to ask if you could do something funky with my shuttle craft, its boring as heck and that computer grey has aged with the stickers pealing etc. Let me know if you can so I can order a new shuttle decal kit. I am open to suggestions, perhaps have it panted to look like its been shot up? Have you seen any shuttle mods out there that I could substitute it with?

    Thanks again!

    If you send the shuttle and NOS decals I'll see what I can do

    Hey now, Brock just want to give you an update that a talented artist aka Slapshot in our group here in Winnipeg agreed to tackle my Borg ship. The Borg ship now looks amazing, all the melted spots he painted to look like it had been shot out! He also hand painted the Borg logo and clear coated the entire thing so it has a metallic shine. Thanks again for your offer to help, glad I found someone local to help me out!

    Very nice. Having this ship painted up always sets this game off.
