d00de, that looks crazy small!  :o

Not really. Should have put something for size reference next to it, but it's about 5" front to back and about 2" wide. The ship itself is around 9" in length, I think. It's 1/64 scale according to most information. Moebius makes a 1/128 scale version, with an interior too.

Thanks Steve.

The gold foil I got from Ebay and it's used in baking and to wrap up sweets. It's very thin but suprisingly tough and for 4gbp you get 100 sheets so it's a bargain.

The kit is in one piece at last.



That was fiddly (the olde' one arm syndrome strikes again) and just some touch up work around the puttied seam and then I can get the detail painting by picking out some of the panels and then the decals and we're sorted on this one.

This kit is "HEAVY" and if the bathroom scales weren't knackered I would certainly weigh it out of curiosity.
We're not quite at the finish line yet but close enough at this stage.

Thanks for watching.

I have also decided to freely share the STL files for those who want to print their own :)

Well i completely ballsed up the Sulaco decal. When i put a matte clearcoat over it, it would up with white tide marks around it, possibly some kind of reaction to decalset. I grabbed the airbrush to try and tidy them up, but ended ruining the definition of the text on the decal.

In the end i sanded it back and repainted the grey.

I was sitting there thinking:
"Damn i cant cut the USS letters small enough, and the bigger letters dont necessarily come out well when cut either. Wish i had a sticker cutting machine so i could cut a nice mask"
And then like an idiot i facepalmed when i realised, i could have just used the 3d printer to print a paint mask! So thats what i've done, but havent had time to paint it yet. This ship name is literally the only thing holding it back from being finished!

OK, apologies for ripping off your pics.  But for the non-believers (including me until now), the 1/8 detail is truly nuts.

Wow.  And people think I must be blind by now!  Your work is great, and this scale just makes it all the more so.

What is old is new again.  This pic has some interesting history to it.

The container of Testors glue is a new one.  I just retired the old one after -at least- 15 years.
The plastic putty knife was purchased in Jacksonville, FL between 2001 and 2003.
The cuticle scissors were purchased in the last two years.  The brass threaded tube, a week ago.
The tweezers were purchased over 5 years ago, but I cannot say when.
The black wash (Citadel), around 2011. 
The hobby mat, well, before 2005.
The wine opener, probably last year when I lost one on vacation.
The Aztek paint, 2015-2016--when I FINALLY got an airbrush.
The big clamps? last year.
The two things of Vallejo Air paint (steel and gold), 2019.
The butane flamethrower (on model scales), meh, it's a fall back.

while working on the main hull, the engine nacelles were finished up.  these are actually out of sequence, but here is one with the primer (50% black, 50% grey stynylrez.  (note, this is not very soluble in isopropyl alcohol!)

and then with the finish (so far) of 2/3 steel, 1/3 gold by Vallejo Air.

Next up, gutting out the sealing up of the main hull.  Butterfly the hull, route the wires, seal it up.  What could go wrong?

Fortunately with PEGASUS, a pair of tweezers can save you at this stage.  A little bit of putty and this will be done.
