1:1000 D7 Romulan Capital Ship
« on: December 13, 2017, 07:27:25 pm »
Hi everyone,

Four years ago, I started to build this Romulan D7 as seen in Star Trek: TAS. As is not too unusual, life got in the way a couple times.
I can now say, however, it is finally done!

Build thread here:
http://scifimodelaction.com/sfmaforum/index.php?topic=1822.msg25526#msg25526

Thank you to all who helped me along on this build, for your advice and support.

So, here you go!










This first thing I actually completed on this build. LOL!


Its current display area.


With my first build and its recently repaired base.


UPDATE: OOPS, forgot one angle!


Thank you all once again. Now to consider my next build!

Spencer

WOw!  Even following the build, this looks great all together.  Clean, crisp masking, and those fiddly yellow pieces seem to fit a bit better than before.

That turned out great Spencer, I think you nailed the look you were going for.

I have been working on the Romulan Battlecruiser version of this kit for the last couple months and its almost hit the trashcan several times it is a very trying kit...but whenever I would get frustrated I would look back on your build and move on, now its almost ready for paint.

Thank you for posting, awesome job

It really does, just don't ask me to do it again.  ;D
Yeah, I whittled on the intakes a little more just before I glued them in.

I'm glad to be helping you through!
A few times I asked "What on Earth have I gotten myself into?"
But, I would always say to myself that it would all turn out in the end.
And, when things would finally swing back my way ... well, I'm sure you
know the feeling when things start turning out right.

If you want, post some photos of your build as it comes along. We're all
(semi-)addicted to photos here!


Two more pics, with a touch of Photoshop (actually GIMP).

Really nice job on the Stormbird, and I love the GIMP retouched photos.

Very clean build Spencer..... and a tough little model as I know.

I blew my Klingon version of this build by choosing way too dark green paint.....  I can correct that with a few fire crackers though.   :b
Just think of what my life might be.....   In a world like I have seen!
