Ah, my old friend DizWhiz, do you know the Klingon proverb that says model building... er, wait... neither do I!  I love your choice for kits; I wish you fun and success with the build and the contest!   8)
That model really tied the room together.

I love the love for the Reliant here guys as she's my 2nd favorite ship as well next to the refit. (I think it was the first trek movie I was old enough to see in theaters so it has a special place in my heart)

Also thanks for the kind words and best wishes I'm going to need it after seeing all of your previous builds! Now I just need to figure out a lighting plan of attack because I all of the screencaps I took from my TWOK blu-ray all of the nav/strobes look red.

I know it'll be down the road a bit Dave, but I'm stoked to
see you work the paintjob!  I'm debating on getting in either the decals
or masks when the time comes to build mine.
Have fun with Dave!  :)
Ooooooo!  I think I may buy that kit!

Jeff thanks I picked up an orbital drydock set of masks which should help immensely.

Joe Boss, great minds  8)

Gotta love the  Reliant.  I think it's the soundtrack I hear looking at the kit.
Look forward to the build.

Okay so we have sub-zero temps again so light blocking was out but I did start the fun process of drilling holes. I used the Paragrafix set but I made a mistake.. I marked the holes with the PE part then drilled afterwards and I used one-size-too-large bit and didn't realize it until after I was done. I then got impatient making the long windows and tried a dremmel at low speed.. you can see how that went on a couple of the sections. Lessons learned!

So I'm unsure if I'm okay with the slightly larger window holes or do I fill and try again. I need to step away I think for a day.
