next thing on the bench.........Klingon D7 Battle Cruiser
i need to do something different and ive not done anything science fiction for a while, and since on another forum they have just started a sf gb it seemed the perfect oppertunity
picked this up in the MZ closing down sale a few years ago
theres a bit of argument over colour scheme, some say grey some say green......my plan is light grey over all......might pick some bits out in medium grey, and a darker grey panel wash
im also thinking of having a go at some form of lighting.......cant afford a proper led set up but i have a bold and cunning plan that might only cost me a quid!
my main worry is where im going to put it when its done!
ive made up as many sub assemblys as i can.......lots of filler needed on joints, still not finished yet
im not sure how im going to do the 'windows'...some i know i can put in after ive painted.......ive seen someone else do this and he just sprayed over the top then scraped away the paint cos they are too small to mask
tamiya bottle for scale
main problem has been everytime ive given i spray of paint its shown up some bit that i havnt filled/sanded enough.........its now had so many coats of paint i dare not give it any more.......and its taking so long to make any progress im in danger of losing interest so im just going to crack on with it and get it done so i can move on to the next thing i have planned
decals on, next step is some matt varnish over the top, then assembly, then i can think about how im going to light it up!!
