I know you keep telling me it is the kit, but I think the progress you are making is a highlight of your skills too my friend!   ;)

I like to see the colors getting laid down on the parts; your paint job is looking very smooth and clean (I hope I can get half of your results on my project).  It looks like they did a good job with the design of the model, you seem to have room for the lighting and wiring so far with little fuss.  Keep kicking this project in the backside man, and keep having fun!   8)
That model really tied the room together.

Thanks all! The color was from Cosmic Colors before Boyd stopped selling it. The same color he did on his.

So another little update. First off I had a OOPS! I was painting my Bussard collector's and one fell of in a dish of Laquer thinner. Im sure everyone knows what happens next. If not it makes the clear plastic very brittle. So I remembered that Federation Models has some resin one's for the 1/350 NX-01. Good thing I am doing a Modified. So I had to wait to put together the nacells. I worked on light blocking my saucer and I painted the halves. When the pieces came in, i put together the nacelle's and puttied them.

Dave, don't you hate it when your parts get a suicidal mind and take a leap!!
Some of my parts have yet to be found!!  =)

You are moving right along on this one! Are you gonna put one of those fancy bases under it like the TOS?

Thanks Kenny! I dont think it will be that big. Matter of speaking I don"t plan on having a base at all. Going to be self powered and I am hanging it.

Looking great. The paint finish is very convincing thus far.

Nice recovery from the lacquer bath; the progress you were showing on Monday night makes me think that this build will be done soon enough for you to take Doc's advice and build a couple of more for the contest!   ;D

So I have made some more progress. I completed putting the lighting and the nav's and strobes in both halves of the saucer. I mounted the board and glues the rear end on the bottom section of the saucer. Working on some FO in the front of the ship. I test fitted the new decals for the PE set from HDAmodelworx.com.
