Saw this in the magazine. It's really great work. It looks like it came right out of the TV screen. You should receive a Starfleet commendation.

Many thanks indeed sir! Your too kind! No genius here...much, much more to learn!
That's a beautifully done model! And the photography is excellent, thank you for sharing.
Really sharp work, I'd swear it was a clip from the series! I saw her in the magazine but thanks for walking us though how you photographed her, I think I need more help with my photos than even my modeling.

Thank you very much indeed!
I am really humbled FineScale decided to print that Picture. Sincere thanks Sir!!
Jim KirkStep 2 the model is placed in a TOS era Star Field .
Wait, where did you get the star field? did you Photoshop the shot with the ship in front of the black? I'm going to build the Romulan Bird of Prey from TOS and it would be great to do something like this. Adding a Plasma torpedo in the shot would be even more awesome.
Scotty would be proud!

That is awesome the FS is publishing your build. Then again its' an awesome build. I am just working the kit and lighting into my budget. MMMM my birthday is coming up. Maybe I can talk the wife into some of it.
Awesome build and great job.
So glad you posted this. The picture in FSM definitely caught my attention.
Your post is the treat of my night. So cool to see your setup and what you did step by step. Thanks, Mark!
Again many sincere and humble thanks!
I have collected and or made several dozen back drops for dropping my models in to show them doing their thing! I honestly don't remember how I came by the star field. I have several. The only backgrounds I can tell you where I got them from are Ocean vistas that I took on Family trips for my Seaview/Flying sub and U-Boat builds!
Here is a picture of the Tamiya clear red inner domes used in the FSM Photo. The inner rod is warped.
Cool, so that's how you did that. I thought so, but wasn't sure.
Guys for more example of my work, please feel free to check over my Face-Book Page...
And thanks again and one more thing...BUILD A MODEL!
Thanks for sharing the more detailed version, Mark.
Adding the grain was an awesome touch. Subtle, yet extremely effective.
I am curious, did you have to show the staff at FSM your in-process shots to prove you actually did that yourself? I'm asking because IMO your work is that good.
No I just wanted to use the opportunity to show how it was done.
And a fun video showing her in action...
You outa make your own Star Trek episode.
Thanks for sharing these behind the scenes pics. I get what you did with most of the set up in these shots, but what's the amber light for? Were you originally going to put a larger Sun-like star near the ship?
Just for additional lighting. It was a mistake. After I did the final Picture I thought it looked wrong. I didn't realize it would stand out so much!
That's pretty cool. Now you need a Klingon Battle cruiser to do battle with.
