Hello fellow modelers here at SFMA.   I am now at the final stages of my build.  Below are pics of the final primer before I begin putting on the main color and the paneling.  I have tested the iridescent colors I got on a spare model piece with the pearl silver & the effect came out perfect!  If all goes well I should be putting on the final decals on Saturday or Sunday.  Once those cure then a nice coat of floor polish.Then I will have the final pics & a small video along with it to show some of the lighting effects.  Really excited to get this one to a finish!  Enjoy!

Hey guys!   Here is a teaser of how the checkerboard panels are coming out!    Just a note - The windows are covered with Elmer's Glue.  This was a trick Boyd posted recently on one of his videos.  Works great!

Hey SFMA guys!   Well here are 3 sneak peak pics of the TOS Bird of Prey almost done!   All that is left is some minor details, clear seal it & set up the base for it!  This was a really exciting build.  Never expected a basic kit like this to take this much time.  But it was well worth it!  Enjoy!

Giant Falcon on the bottom, what more could you ask for.

It may have began as a basic kit, but there's nothing 'basic' about anymore. Great work! Love how the falcon wing tip wraps around the side of the nacelle.
