Iain, this is looking awesome! (What else would I expect?! :) )

The greebly cables look very well done. What did you use for the gold looking foil? That must have taken some time.


Then at last I will start a kit which no-one has seen before and that will be the 1/350 USS Enterprise refit so I hope you look forward to that build.


I KNOW I will be watching THAT build! Is this one to replace the other that your cat knocked off?

Good luck and keep going!

Steve

Looks great, Steve!

Your model photography skills have really improved as you have been taking pictures for your continuing story!

The model itself is being well done! Keep going!

The Other.

Super excited for the new site! Thanks for all of your efforts, Boyd. Out of interest, is there a new name for the forum as yet?
AllModelAction.com might not get the kind of users you were intending!  ???

Whatever photos you can get  ;D

Took a bunch of photos this afternoon. Need to resize them before downloading to Flickr!...

Here's the rendezvous scene from "Charlie X" with my 1/1000 scale Enterprise:

Pretty close to the scene from the remastered episode below:

Sorry for the lengthy topic title, bit wanted it clear for any ine skimming. The 6ft Enterprise D, "small" Jein made Excelsior, Large full DS9, TMP Klingon Battle Cruiser, FC Borg Cube, a number of uniforms, hand phasers, Voyager Capt Chair, are all on display in a local city. While my camera (phone) is not the greatest, and most are behind glass and in dimly lit areas, but if there are any requests I'll try to get them today.

I did get to see then shortly the other day (got called back into work for a department meeting) but icl can say while the Christies auction pics are great and probably oue greatest resource its left us a little misled. The Ent D neck looks a  lot different in person; where the sides and back meet is far shaper. The back slop is more smooth and rounded but longer and shallow. All hard to explain in words and for some odd reason photography just doesn't pick it up well. Also the paint job, there's far more gloss than we all thought.

Ps all posted from my phone. Sorry for typos.

Modelers Questions Board / Re: Abteilung 502 Oils
« Last post by LynnInDenver on March 31, 2019, 08:28:29 am »
My understanding is the Abteilung lines are formulated specifically to be used as washes and weathering on scale models, with consistently finer particles of pigment involved. Standard artist oils may work, but the formulations are intended for, well, painting, so some colors may not work as well as others even in the same brand.

The professional modelers and prop makers I've been watching on YouTube (including Adam Savage) seem to prefer using the Abteilung as a weathering medium.

Just a quick wee update.

The sled/undercarriage/landing gear thingamabob is pretty well done and dusted with just some pipe pieces to be added and the mesh grills for the spotlights when I get around to them sometime today. I added some additional cabling as I thought this thing would be hydraulically powered in some way and especially around the landing legs and feet.





The model has more than enough nooks and crannies where such cabling can be added without going overboard (to me anyway) but I did sit down and look at the part for a bit first to try and figure out where any such hydraulic lines could/would be placed.

Going to attend too the seams on "The Ball" today once I get my act together (it's Mother's Day here in the UK). I wasn't going to use the kit supplied figures but both Eleanor and my mum thought it would be a waste once they saw what the kit will look like on that video I shot. So - the figures will be posted to a mate who is a superb figure painter and they'll be added when they arrive so all I'll have to do then is add one into the cockpit then I can add the main window section and the other will be on the base. The base will just be a plain circular base stained somehow.

I reckon I'll have this kit pretty well completed (bar the window frame and figures) in the next day once I paint up some of the panels on the main hull and apply the decals. Then at last I will start a kit which no-one has seen before and that will be the 1/350 USS Enterprise refit so I hope you look forward to that build.

Thanks for watching.
