Thank you. I'm just about finished with painting the "Aztec" panels on the main hull. Once the weather warms up enough to paint outdoors I'll be able to clear coat the entire model and begin the weathering with washes.This is really great. Such a nice looking ship, especially for a kitbash.
Thank you for your comments. Yes, I will be adding washes to the model once I have the ship name added. The washes will make the look of the ship complete.Looks great, I like how faithful you've remained to the U.S.S. Buckner model. Will you be adding any washes or leave it is as it is?
I've been watching this thread with interest for months. I'm guilty of starting threads on other forums then not (yet) completing the project, so I think you've beaten me with timescales.
Inspired by this thread, I have my own Centaur under construction and it's at the white primer stage. I might be able to help with the decals as I've had go at some using the standard fonts though it sounds as though you want some without the red outline (Micrograma bold extended instead of Starfleet bold extended) and the ship name to be in Impact (or similar) instead of Micrograma.
Hi, I'm not looking to sell any decals but I could send either a Photoshop PSD file or Adobe Acrobat PDF, that you would need to print out on clear waterslide decal paper. There's a few brands on the market and you spray a fixative layer over the sheet once you've printed them to stop the ink from running in the water.Thank you for your comments. Yes, I will be adding washes to the model once I have the ship name added. The washes will make the look of the ship complete.
This thread is one of the oldest that I have been a part of. I never thought it would take this long to complete.
Looking at the photos of the ship that was used on DS9, it appears to me that the NCC number doesn't have the red outline. It would be nice to have decals like that but as I have it now, I will keep it until I find some without the red outline. As far as the ship name decal, I thought I could piece together letters from the decal sheets I have but this proved to be difficult to do. If you should make some I would pay for a couple sets.
