    Sweet. I was about to shut down the PC and head to bed (maybe watch some more of District 9) and I thought I’d hit the forums and blogs to see if anyone posted anything cool. Sure enough, you don’t disappoint. 😎

    BTW, NOTHING you do looks easy. Of course, I’ve also built my share of plastic models and there’s a reason I don’t do it anymore. (I prefer CGI ;)) And I never got anywhere near as fancy as you do, with the lights and whatnot. You do things with a plastic model that I can only watch and say, “Wow, that’s cool.” So, while it may look like you did that stuff quickly, I know there were more than a few edits in that video. 😉

    She’s looking great so far. I’m looking forward to watching this progress. This is by far my favorite Klingon design. I even prefer the classic D7 to the updated K’t’inga.

    And, on a final note, thanks for the laugh. The part about the lost combadge and never finding your way back to the ship from the shower was good for a hearty chuckle. 😀

    Just seeing that ship together at the end of the video brings back memories, its such a great design! The later Bird of Prey design was nice, but this is the one that says, ‘Klingon.’ Watching the show as a little kid, you knew when you saw that form in the distance, that there was trouble, LOL!

    I was thrown at first when you mentioned that just the front of the ship had lighting, as I could have sworn there were some engine lights at the front and back, but then I realized that, that wasn’t the case. Either way, it’s gonna be a beauty when it’s done! Love watching it take shape!

    Thanks, Steve!

    I love the D-7 its one of my favourite designs totally off the chain compared to other space ships at the time.

    I love the crisp and clean molding, it looks like its going to be quite a heavy but sturdy model. Looking at the thickness of it I’d imagine drilling those windows out and filing them square is going to take a while particularly the top section looks like a solid piece.

    The last time I did something like that i milled out the entire section inserted a piece of clear perspex cut to shape sanded and filled then just masked where the windows were going to be.

    I was really impressed with the scale of that kit, and so I looked up Atomic City models, saw Scott’s address, and realized that he lives about 15 minutes from me! So, I guess I might be able to save some money on shipping…

    This is a lot of fun to watch, can’t wait to see the color scheme and the whole thing lit up! Thanks for the video update.
