Beginners 537 Ent-A
« on: September 14, 2017, 08:01:48 pm »
Here is an Enterprise-A I completed awhile back. The pictures I have are with the saucer and nacelles attached and glue drying. I used DVDs stacked because they were the only things i could use to get the height right. I did this one for the size and not for the accuracy. Everyone knows it is terrible for being finicky and grossly inaccurate.

This is a very Plain Jane rendition. I painted it with rattle cans and Testors. I completed and painted the sub-assemblies before I ever knew of TrekWorks and the modeling forums (2011). Then in 2015, I picked the kit back up and used a little of what I had learned from reading online. I bought an airbrush and finished it with Future. I didn't know anything about accuracy, sanding, filling, painting and electronic techniques. I wish I had more pics, but I gifted it to my brother.

She looks good!  It's hard to get that kit to look decent.  I say this from experience! ;D

Well, if there is one thing I could learn from you sharing this, it's that using DVDs is a good idea! This turned out nice. Thanks for sharing.
