The stern section is really coming together now! After i have scored the details onto the thruster housings and added the remaining detail to the structural ribs, i can glue them together and start adding the outer layers.
I may have an idea for the ship's name: "WINTER OF DISCONTENT" ...what do you all think?
Almost done! It sould be ready for the first coat of paint by sunday!
There are still a few details and some major pieces to be made and added, but overall it is nearly complete. I didn't update for the last two weeks because i ran into some problems with the bridge and had to re-build it, also i hadn't finished the missile hatches, so an update then would have been pointless. For this update i drained the color just to equalize it and give an idea of what it will look like with the first coat of paint.
For the Frigate's name, i've decided not to start a poll and to name it "Winter Of Discontent". Not that i wouldn't mind hearing other name ideas, but the name has really stuck with me and i can't see naming it anything else.
Not really related to the frigate, but something i'm also working on in my spare time. It's the emblem i use for the Halo games, i made templates of it and after i finish sewing it, i'll sew it onto the other shoulder.
Well, construction on the Frigate just wraped up a half hour ago. Which brings the number of work hours to around 180. Tomorrow i'll be putting on two coats of silver spray paint, on thursday i'll brush the grey paint on, friday i'll paint the details and saturday the clear lacquer goes on. After which my nearly two month labor of love will finally be completed!!
I'll post pictures late tomorrow after the silver has been applied.
