SNG Daily Pictures 6-5-14

All the lighting is now in the Enterprise. She needs to have the windows scratched out next. I only did a few to prove the strip lighting inside was doing the job. It is. But now it’s time to do the Aztec paint job before that and scrap the pain of the windows after that.

What follows after all those steps is to make the structure solid to itself closing off all the joins and fixing all the light leaks and touch up the pain.  The last thing to do is the decals. The base has to be lighted too and pained and finished off.

Remember this one was cast in all clear plastic. So no drilling and filling were necessary in order to get the windows. Only drawback is every time you accidently scratch it or a clamp digs in you get a light leak easily fixed with a bit more paint.

The Skydiver is slowly shaping up and all the parts have been filled, sanded and preened. The fins have been blended to the engines. Brass pins run through them for strength. She’s really starting to look clean. Monday I start putting the panel lines back.

    It’s hard to believe that Skydiver model is the same one you pulled out of the box a while back. It’s looking so much better with a little TLC. 🙂

    And, of course, I’m loving the -D. She’s a real beauty. Andrew Probert did a superb job designing that ship.
