Mirroring the comments of EVERYONE else... your work and dedication to this project is simply fantastic! Question, what size drill bits did you use for the lighting on the bridge section?
I primed it semigloss black and sprayed a custom mix of white, off white and a drop of Gunze 308. I did mask some panels here and there when putting on the main colours to break up the mononity of the base colour.The insane level of detail aside, I love the look of the neck in the last couple of shots- not sure if that's your final paint layer, but something just looks right about the colour. Did you just go white over the naked grey plastic, or did you prime it first (black?)?
Galactica stuff? Goodness, that was a long time ago. I never did finish those off. Funnily enough I came across the Pegasus last week when I was tidying up and I struggled to remember why I put it away. I think it was because I'd run out of SMDs which naturally has been long since rectified. Once I'm done with this SD, I might pull it out and finish it off as it was showing promiseI love all the details you've added.
You are definitely a master at getting scale details in there. Everything from your Galactica stuff to the Yamato stuff has been very impressive
Cheers mate . Have some bits ; 0.3mm (4 x 10) already in storage for this future build they’re H.S.S , but these look a lot more substantial and hopefully will stay ‘intact’ longer. Ordered a couple of sets. Thanks!hi Ged

Where are you getting those little cream/tan greeblies you are adding? I am building one as well and haven't seen anything like that. Are they bits you are molding yourself or can they be found online? Thanks!Neck details:

Thanks mateFan-bloody-tastic Mate !
I remember you saying in an earlier post that ‘greebling up’ areas can be therapeutic , and can certainly understand that sentiment when cutting and placing ‘chips’ of styrene around, but how do you handle cutting and putting all those ‘other’ complex parts together - the ones with raised surfaces , angled & chiseled out edges ?
