Still more decals!

Lets see. 10 more hours today and I got everything on except the the lower half of the engineering hull on and the saucer bottom. With any luck I’ll have that all done tomorrow around this time.

Clear on Saturday. Sunday the decals that came with the kit. More clear on Monday. A bit of touch up paint here and there and done. I think.

    Thanks Jeff. She’s a hard build. A sub would be easier!

    Now it looks like a studio model.

    What kind of clear coat are you going to put on it to seel in the decals and how severe is the weathering job your going to put on it going to be?

    Moderate weathering like a B-17 after a few mission. Clear coat by testors from a can. Twice.

    Bro, that looks like Doug Drex himself rendered her! Well done!

    In a way he did. He’s been working with me on this and providing me with new renders from Lightwave. That and a constant Skype connection!

    Thanks!

    Is that going to be a gloss or flat coat?
