I for got to put this on here so time to catch up.
Starting another new build. It's the Nice 'N' Models studio scale bird of prey
Got to be a bit of an engineer on this one as well.

A bit more progress on the studio scale Klingon- bird of prey I'm working on. Here's some pictures of the wing tip guns.
I used solder to join the brass parts together.

Studio scale Klingon- Bird Of Prey update,
This is what you start out with for the neck , and the second picture is what I ended up with once I'd poured glue all over the parts and just rolled them together.....(Obviously I'm joking)
I added the parts in front of the tube myself to make the area a bit more "busy" looking.

BOP,
Here's one of the first parts of the lighting that needs doing on this and the results after bit of soldering and gluing.
It's much redder in real life

Some more work that Ive done of this monster of a kit.
The first picture shows the clear red plastic I cut to go around the torpedo tube.



The next two show one of the nav lights, which consists of four parts (aluminium tube with a brass tube inside that, the led and some clear sprue pushed in the front). I think I over engineered that just a bit.




This one shows a bit of wire work thats been done with aluminium rod and solder.



Last one is a paint test

Awesome work indeed, and such attention to detail in every step and take it this is your project? Do you ever do build up work for people wanting model kits made to this quality but not as large a project as this obviously? It is really great to follow this project from someone with the UK too!

The link posted by Mike J is very interesting and some great close up shots especially torpedo housing looks great and will no doubt be of useful reference. Looks like Neo has the paint colour spot on the movie studio scale model, not an easy thing to match I am sure. Great likeness indeed and tribute to the guys skills. More progress wanted, this is a great update to follow.

Here's the wing lights ready to be wired up.
Notice the small aluminum tube inserts to stop light emitting from the side of the LED.

As a guy in the Model making business.. it is such a treat to see "your" model being made. Dean great job buddy! Will be nice to see this all finished up.. the video chats we have done is so prefect helping get things together I am going to offer that feature to everyone who buys a kit. Its so easy to actually show how a part goes in and its really cool to get to interact one on one with the builder! I'm grateful you chose my BOP kit but even more to be able to call you a friend! Thanks buddy!
