I be a very excited boy….Okay youth challenged guy. I got my CD from Trekmodeler of their paint guide for the Enterprise Refit and Refit A.
Having leafed through it I’m really impressed with what looks likes a lot of research on this subject being distilled
into this PDF.
Page after page of photos and diagrams depicting your way through the paint job.
The only small disappointment for me is the exclusion on mix ratios. I know a lot of it will be down to a person’s preference or
the reference a person is using, but having the ratios as a jumping off point would have been nice.
If you have a colour printer print this puppy out for easy ref as you paint…you know for that huge mountain of ref you no doubt
already have in mountains around your build table!
Again a great addition to your library of ref and how to’s on the ship they call the Enterprise!
Do yourself a favour and head over to Trekmodeler and snag your CD!

The Elder Predator has finally made it’s way to our house.Elder_Pred

Sorry about the pic. Had an eye exam today and my vision is not back to normal yet.

Finally a better pic!

Man it takes a long time to get a package from Georgia to British Columbia! It’s here now though and now the building can commence in earnest!
Has a small spot of damage circled in red. Looks like a sharp drop onto something (edge of a table) hard.
Not really concerned as the workbee is not my favorite creature.

All the best to everyone that has taken the time to drop in (or by accident even)  to my wee spot on the net.
I hope I can make up some cool stuff that will make your visits worthwhile in 2014!

In the meantime have a great 2014 everyone!

Okay then.  I don’t have the etched brass from Paragrafix yet but thought I might try adding the Rec Deck window uprights in styrene.
Here is what I ended up with !

Okay then…glue has hit the styrene! The beginning of the saucer rim installation.
Going to go slow and steady on this to make things easier for myself.
No “bulls in China shops” attitude on this one.

Finally got the Enterprise out of the box for a test/dry fitting. This  thing is bloody huge!
With lights and a custom base this will be one awesome build!
Wish me luck!

And yes…that is a yard stick!
