Round2 Klingon Bird-Of-Prey 1:350
« on: October 20, 2017, 01:45:56 pm »
Hey Guys!

Some of you who saw my 1966 Shelby Cobra S/C wanted me to post in the WIP for my next project ( In this case my First ).

I have never done a 1:350 and figured, since I like a challenge, I would go grab one today and start that process.

For my First "Big" project I wanted to do something Star Trek related, as I am a fan and well, IT'S STAR TREK!?

Any feedback ( Positive or Constructive ) would be SUPER appreciated as I will need as much as I can get.

It might be a few days before my next update as I need to research paints and lights. <--- Any help with both of those would help me immensely!

  • All I ask is a tall ship & a star to steer her by.

Way to jump in the fire with both feet!

I saw the quality of your Shelby and know you'll be fine with this!

I'll be following along to learn a thing or two!

Steady as she goes!

Thank you guys for the interest! This is going to be a very awesome learning opportunity as I go along.

Yesterday I started on some primer for the main hull and wings.

Haven't ever done primer on a model before I painted it, so here's hoping I haven't already doomed myself haha!

I don't have a fancy shop or nothing to do my projects, so I have to spray all the parts outside in a box ;)

Anyway, I will try to update everyone every day on progress and hope to get some great feedback along the way!

You are a genius! I didn't even think of that haha. I might just do that!

Like I said earlier this week, I want to keep updates as often as I can.

The main hull parts have been primered and I am just waiting for my lighting kit from MadMan Lighting before I move onto the build phase!

Next update will follow the day they come in!

I have three of these kits (not built yet) so I'll definitely be interested in your build.  I also have the Playmates 'toy' that has lights and sound as well as the Diamond Select 'HMS Bounty' Bird of Prey from ST IV.  Both the Playmates and Diamond Select are 350 scale and the exact same size as the AMT/Round2 Bird of Prey- in fact the parts look interchangeable.  The Diamond Select is incredible in its detail and lighting.

I saw a video once, but for the life of me I can't find it again... it was a 350 BOP build that had motorized wings!  Talk about wicked cool!  I'm all in on spinny blinky moving things!

I'm not trying to hijack your thread, if you don't want these here I'll remove them.

This is my Diamond Select 'HMS Bounty' BOP



The wings are movable too...  I can't show it in the attack position because of the landing gear and it not being on a stand.

I like them haha. With enough time...and patience...I hope mine can look just as good as yours. With Halloween and Life getting in the way, I haven't had much time to get back at the kit. But I plan on hitting it again within the next couple of days.
