FINISHED! Studio Scale Klingon D7 (TV version)

  • Wrapped up this baby today (whew!). The kit went together with very little trouble. I did move the post mount hole farther forward, as the stock position is not at center of gravity. Enjoy the pics-

  • Beautifully done!

  • That is excellent!

  • Beautiful work! Love the different colours of grey you worked in there, makes the detail pop more. Was the original studio model painted this way or just a plain grey?

    Built the AMT kit years ago and on my TV the ship looked a light blue. Somehow baby blue doesn't come off as a 'warrior's' colour to me and I should pull her out, clean her up and repaint her.

    Just because no one understands you- it doesn't make you an artist!

  • Is it me, or do the Klingon and Romulan ships just look meaner than Federation ships? Except for USS Reliant.... Very nicely done MN!

    F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!

    U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!

    N is for NO SURVIVORS...

  • I think that was Bradbury's intention to reflect on the Klingon military society.

    ... Was the original studio model painted this way or just a plain grey?

    Thanks. The studio models started with this green/gray scheme. At some point, one of the models got an additional green color added to some areas. The colors I used were custom matched to color samples from an original filming model.

  • That's actually a factory warning that states, "UNLEADED FUEL ONLY".
