My Reliant 1/537 final build.
« on: December 13, 2018, 08:04:56 am »
Well here she is folks.  Finally got her finished.  I had a mirror made and build the rest of the base myself.  the video has dialog from the movie but it's kind of hard to hear.   You have to click into this first picture to go see the video.

To build or not to build.... that is the question.   The answer.... build... Duh.

Lovely!

There's nothing like Star Trek ships imo. :)

Thank you Decoman.

I agree.   This is actually my 3rd favorite Star Trek ship. 
 1. Enterprise Refit,
 2. Enterprise Original series. 
 3. Reliant. 
 4. Klingon Bird of Prey.

Thank you oldminer.   I think the base turned out pretty nice.   I certainly learned a ton about modeling from this experience.

My favorite Star Trek ships are the same as yours.  A Reliant build is definitely in my future.

That's really cool Tshark.   And the funny thing is they are ALL awesome ships in their own way. 

When you start your reliant be sure and post pictures.  It's a fun ship to build.  I've actually started working on a second one.

It will be awhile.  Next up is the Proteus from Fantastic Voyage, then I have a "smoothie" Refit Enterprise.  After those the Reliant (or possibly a USS Lantree mod) build.

Soooo many models..Soooo little time!

Sounds like a great line up.   No kidding on the no time thing.   When I start working on models it's the only thing I want to do.
