Looks great and cool idea with the White-Out. I don't know if it might cause problems or not, but it is supposed to take ink on its surface, so hopefully it will do so with paint as well.
Thank you! I'm still feeling like it's not as good as it could be, but I keep reminding myself this is also a learning experience, developing new skills. I definitely tried to rush some things and it shows, but hopefully the end result will still be ok.That is an awesome job you've done there. I know how it goes with fdm. Sand, fill, sand, fill etc. That starship is looking great. I can't wait to see the finished result. Something to be proud off, I'm sure!
Thank you! Though I shouldn't take too much credit, Doug Drexler still deserves that for his design. But I'm glad you like what I've been able to do with it so far! I will agree with you about the original NX-01, I didn't care much for it either, too dark and flat for my tastes.My goodness! You took one of the most bland and boring ships ever produced in Star Trek lore, and turned it into one of the prettiest things I have ever seen!
You do know you can fix that with a little shimming, clamping and glueing right? The issue is you gotta know to do it as you build as it really sucks afterwards...Hmm - So any chance you could print corrected nacelle struts for the 1:350 kit that'll let the nacelles get mounted straight?
Thanks so much! My goal was to try to see if I could make it look as close to a pre-made kit as possible. There's still issues that keep it from looking indistinguishable, but for my first attempt, first time working with 3D printing and inkjet decals, I'm fairly pleased.If I didn't know better, I'd have thought it was a commercial model. Great job!
