lol!!

 

 Here's with the first round of the gray marble effect applied.

Image

and then I came back over the whole thing with my Badger 150 with a little tighter pattern for the marble effect. We'll be jumping from here on the rest of the assembly and camo scheme.

Mustang,

The pre-shading looks good. I know I've seen that office before, and, it's still some fantastic work.

Your paint and decal work looks great so far Ed. Aires is the manufacturer of that pit. Most aftermarket pits are a real PIA to work with but this one has been a dream so far.

After a good long drying period for thw wash I gave the A-1 a flat coat.  I'll let that sit a while before I continue.

 I spent the better part of 3 hours applying paint. I already know I'm going to hear it from somebody because I've been telling myself all morning long that I must like to make things difficult. I have applied these colors in patches rather than go over most of the bird with the predominant color. I made the mistake of applying the predominant color once on my Stuka and I didn't much care for it because when I went back over the base color with the second camo color it looked to thick. So I opted to do things this way. I've also opted not to put the cockpit on just yet. I'll get to that in due time and in my own fashion...……..the hard way. I do like the benefits of the marble pattern and will more than likely continue that trend. There is a couple of touch ups that I need to do between the camo colors but I do like this way even though it is time consuming. I spend more time masking than I've spent on any other area of the model.

Looks great!  Thats the way to do it if you want to have the preshading to not be hidden.  I'll do this often with WWII german stuff and SEA camo and it's well worth the effort.

I'm back in the saddle again my fine feathered friends.

I've done ALOT of work on this one as of late. The friggin' landing gear legs broke loose from their mounting and I had to re-glue those back on.  I've pretty much completed the camo scheme for this aircraft and have to say that this one goes down as one of the most difficult paint jobs that I've done yet with all the black basing, marbling and masking. Sheesh!!! With all that being said and aside from needing to paint the back of the engine nacelle a burnt black here's where we are now:

and the bottom side.

after the burnt black application on the engine nacelle we'll be off to completing the nose section and applying a gloss coat! My FAVORITE part. :yipee:

@68,

The A-1 looks great, I really like that SEA camo scheme.

@Mustang,

Your 234 looks great. I still think that cockpit is one ofthe best I've seen. I'm looking forward to seeing this one finished!

So here is my entry for the shelf...I hope to get her out of space dock soon...

ENTERPRISE 1701-A

I originally wanted to add lights the saucer section and secondary hull and make the impulse engine deck glow. Access as you can see has been added to the bottom of the secondary hull complete with on/off switch and a means of mounting the ship on a plaque when completed. But now I think I might abandon that approach and just get this thing done. 

It's been sitting for years as I bought it new when the movie came out circe 1986?!?

I Finally got around to working on this. I decided to forgo internal lighting as I just want to get this done finally. If I decide I want a lighted model, I'll just start a new model, after all they are pretty easy to find.

Anyway, I permanently glued in the battry cover and sealed in the on/off switch. I filled the seams and rescribed (horribly) the panel lines...

Still needs some clean up and refinement.

Next the impulse engines were to be internally lit. So scrapping that idea, I had to rebuild the impulse deck. Here puttied over and waiting for clean up then some embellishments to be added...

Again still a lot of cleanup ahead, but still its progress.
