Started on the superstructure on guns. The guns are not glued yet and I want to do a lot more to the super.

Cool.  That's some serious frankenstiening action.  You wont have any filler and sand paper left when you're done!

Thanks,

John

Hopefully a lot less spart parts.

I'm thinking of converting the forward blisters into gun pods. Make hole, insert tube, sand tube even with pod, bingo, some sort of fusion pulse phaser or heavy sonic cannon.

Thanks SD

Some more work on the MO last night. I decided to make the forward blisters nutron pulse guns and the bow barrel a sonic wave gun. Of course sanding and filling is in order.

Well, after some more work, I think I'm finally done adding and buttoned her up. Guns on, as well as the antennas. I think I'm going to paint her black and red with the black having a star field. The "camo" will be a MS 32 18D pattern like North Carolina using the black and red. I'm not sure I'll paint any red on the superstructure but I'll see how dark it is. Anyway, her she is just finished, then with the black.

Here the MO is with some red on her. Now that it's on I like it so I'll add some more.

I was thinking of copper for the wing pods, engines nozzels, antennas and hull vents.

That is cool! The paint job is as wild as the concept. Nice job. Now your spares box is empty and you're out of filler lol

Thanks,

John

You did a good job on that one.  I would have had a different look to it but you did good.  I once considered a carrier but decided not to.  I still have a couiple more battleships and battlecruisers to do After I finish my Seaquest.
