1/1400 USS Defiant from Nova-Hobbies (Modified)
« on: February 28, 2014, 03:25:25 pm »
Here is my entry in the contest, the 1/1400 USS Defiant from Nova-hobbies.
Here are the required pics with proof of date :





This is 3 parts kit, but the casting isn't great, so a lot of effort will be required to make this look good...













There is some decals supplied, but I'll probably buy some JT-graphics.

1/1400 scale? are you kidding me!?  :o kudos to you, man!  ;D My brain cramped just thinking about the detail possibilities! Good luck!

Hi guys,

Just to let you know that the Defiant is currently taking its bath, so I can clean up the release agent tomorrow, and start working on fixing the flaws of the casting the week-end...

Lol, Jeff. That thing is so greasy that even two weeks in that should not clean it up... ;)

My usual recipe is 12 to 24h in there then a good scrubbing, then washed again with regular soap... 

I should be able to clean it today, but making resin dust won't be happening before this week-end, I just have a few things to finish first... ;)

Wow! She's tiny!

Looking forward to your build, looks like a lot of work will be required to sort out the casting...

This will look fantastic alongside the other 1400s!
