Go big or go home. Here's my entry. Will have brass and lights. Not sure yet about paint masks or decals. We'll see. I have the masks too.

Looking forward to this build. I can't bring myself to start one of mine (I have four of these kits) I keep thinking retirement, but will watch your build for inspiration!

Onward and upward! Mocking up saucer walls for material removal. Hope to have that all done today.

Thanks for looking. Well, I think I got enough done today. Tomorrow I hope to have an "Altered Bridge" and a good jump on the saucer lighting.

Hi Lufty,
I got this kit for Xmas.  Couldn't believe how big it is compared to 1/2500 1701-A.
The saucer is about the size of large pizza pan.
Made me laugh at the difference.
Couldn't help but think the 1/2500 was thinking, "That's what I want to be when I grow up!"

Thanks! I modified the bridge and installed window frames and continued work on the saucer lighting. Some light touch ups on the bridge. Some putty/sand sessions on that window frame and should look nice.

Great work so far! Are the window ports in pieces because they look seamless on your build.

Probably the trickiest part of this build is not destroying the sensor bands when dealing with that seam. My copy went together very well and there is minimal seam to deal with thankfully.
Moving on to the REC deck.  Jerry's decals really look good. Will put a few figures in there as well.

Got a little more of the shuttlebay finished. I'm using Tenacontrol's sequential landing lights as well as the ratheon lighting. Also a little bit of fiber optic along the catwalks. I'm not using cannon colors in the shuttle bay because quite frankly I think the original looks too much like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

Thanks for the comments! Today I scratched the arboretum off the to do list. I haven't decided what to do with the ceiling to the arboretum. Some say to leave it clear for better lighting and some have painted and claim the light effect is still good. If anyone who has built this kit can confirm either scenario I'd be grateful. Anyway, more progress pics....

Beautiful arboretum! First time I've seen HDA's new decals in use on the sidewalls. Nice work!

Thanks guys! Onward and upward. The shuttle bay is sealed up. Again, practically nothing is cannon in there but it is pleasing to my eye. I wanted warm tones in there, not a bright white light. The upper and lower saucer halves are complete. The crew deck behind the bridge is also finished again with what I thought looked good, not cannon. The decals so far in this copy have been horrible. Almost all of the hangar and vehicle decals just crumbled along with the viewer decals in the crew deck. I had to piece them together like a jigsaw puzzle. I used HDA's decals in the crew lounge as well for a unique look.

I think I have the bridge flood lights where I want them. The top saucer is painted and I have started to paint the bridge area and crystal. I have installed a light box around the crystal for light blocking. I made some SMD's from LED tape for the bottom saucer's flood lights. I will be closing up the saucers soon after final wire management and light blocking.

Thanks guys. Well, started work on secondary hull and test fit the shuttle bay. I need a bit more light toward the front. Got a bit more painted on the bridge as well. Still waiting for my pearls to come in along with Orbital Drydock's new mask set. I put the Aztec Dummys back in the drawer.

Thanks guys. Your comments are greatly appreciated. Making more progress on the saucer, I put the crew deck glass in (.20 clear styrene) and installed the bottom sensor floods. They will be zeroed in once the glass piece has been painted.

Thanks! The crew lounge window is a piece of clear Evergreen Styrene that I traced the shape of the window then applied heat to curve it. Easy squeezy! It is clearer than crystal. I will do the same for the arboretum windows.

I have installed the lights in the secondary hull and tidied up the sequential landing lights wiring, installed SMD's to light the turbo shafts and continuing the blending process on the arboretum windows.  I have glued the saucer halves together and primered the bottom half with flat black and sanded smooth. I have also started the light blocking process on the neck.

Thanks for the comments. I am almost ready to close up the secondary hull with the exception of just a few items one of which is the pylon floods. On the topside I used 3mm and only had to enlarge the opening just a tad to accommodate them. The lower outboard floods are a different story. PL made the hole the wrong angle so I had to bore out the hole to the proper angle, hold a 2mm lighthouse LED in place while I puttied around it. All floods for the pylons are now in place and aimed the best I could get them and I am satisfied with the look. Moving on...

Very nice work. I like the decals used in the officers lounge. Really adds some nice detail there.
Great job on the wiring as well. Gotta love that magnet wire.

Thanks guys. Well, not much progress. I did finish painting the saucer base color. Stop overspending on paint. I used a $2.99 bottle of artists acrylic. Can you imagine what an 8 once bottle of Model Master or Tamiya would cost?

Okay, airbrush newbie question alert! Did you have to thin the Apple Barrel paint, and if so, was it just water, and what ratio did you use? I've been so confused on what paints need thinned, ratios, etc. that I'm afraid to even try my new airbrush for fear of screwing it up somehow. And nobody in my town carries Tamiya, Master Modeler, or most of the others I've seen mentioned here. But my local Wal-Mart has Apple Barrel, and so does a local craft store.

Thanks

You can thin The Apple barrel with windex or water. But yes it has to be
thinned to go through the AB. I thin mine down to a milk consistency.

Actually I haven't done anything to it yet, just sat in place. The imperfections inside the crystal are doing some neat things, I may go with that.

Need to repost this. More progress. This won't make deadline. I have other commissions as well. My goal really is to have this done for the IPMS USA Nationals in Aug. Anyway, more work needs to be done on the nacelles and secondary hull but I'm getting close to painting Aztecs.

Thanks for the comments. The repair process is slow. Much damage to fix. The arboretum looks like a tornado swept through it. Had to remove it from the hull and redo most of it. But that is done and back in the hull now it's just a matter of putty and sand work to fix the break and then re scribe the lines. I did manage to apply the Aztec markings to the top of the saucer and nacelles.

Your kit is really coming along nicely sorry to see that you had to re-fix your kit from it rolling off your bench. Since I am new to modeling, I do have a question that you or anyone else can answer where did you get all the little trees and other small part you did with the officer's lounge and arboretum because that is absolutely a beautiful job you did on both?

Thanks for the vote of confidence guys. Repairs were made and final light blocking adjustments on the secondary hull are finished. Decided to use decal Aztecs due to time constraints, however, they are "encased" in future so in a couple days I will mask and paint random Aztecs with the pearl colors. I have a spare kit and had intended to replace the secondary hull altogether but after a few days of putty and sanding and priming, I achieved acceptable results. I might possibly finish this in time but commission builds and spring projects on the house are making a negative impact on that.

jguard,

That's a lot of really good detailed repair work in such a short time. Looks like you might make it in August.  Good luck at IPMS!

(And how you got it from almost finished TOS to almost finished Refit since May 1st is nothing short of miraculous!)  ;)

I appreciate all the compliments and words of encouragement during this my first 1701-A/ Refit build. Unfortunately, she will not be finished in time. RL and commission builds just kept me from focusing 100% on this project. During this build, I finished two 1/350 TOS ships and started a third plus another Refit for a client. Had I been able to concentrate on this build alone she would have been finished some time ago. Good luck to those who finished.  Please move this thread to the WIP and I will post future updates.

Where she stands at the end of the contest....

Sorry too you didn't make it on time James but you put in a great effort anyway. The ship looks great.
We'll all be looking forward to the finish. Thanks for taking part in the contest.
