i was wondering if that was what happend, i hope they keep it for a while, i would like to see it some day.
Thanks Jay,To me, something like this is a fine wine. It has to age to be appreciated. Don't just sell it right now, enjoy it for awhile (which I am glad the customer is doing).
Nice color choice. Maybe not the "accurate" color (I know, overused term in regards to Trek subjects), but I agree with your reasoning as the presentation looks great. Camo gray has always been a nice color for spaceship models. I think it hit the right look here because of the model's size and how the light plays across it.
Thanks pengbuzz,I believe that our best projects aren't the ones that go smoothly, but the ones where we have to overcome tremendous challenges to get anywhere near where we want it to be.
Awesome work on this, OD!! And yeah: accurate can be a bit of a subjective term. it largely depends upon what we want to be accurate to. I think as long as we are accurate to what is in our imaginations, we will always be on track with our projects. After all, that is where the Starship Enterprise truly lives, as well as all our favorite ships and characters.
Thanks Mustang, If this hadn't been a client build, I would have smashed it out of frustration long ago. You were better off giving it away.I must say really GREAT WORK with a sh#t kit. I know all to well first hand with one. I was so put out by mine I gave the thing away.
The master was made of foam and then covered in paper mache LOL.
I had made a shuttle for it but never sent it to him who cant be named. LOL
You have really put a lot of blood,sweat and tears into that hit to make it look that good....
He used cheap auto fiberglass kits got at Autoshack. Like to never got the smell out of the house after I opened it..
I'm actually not sure if he's flown it yet. Been sick & out of commission for a few weeks. I'll talk with him tomorrow & post. As soon as it is up in the air he'll be more than happy to show it off!Foster Fitness in Portland? Is this beasty available for viewing there?
