Finished 1st project for The Model Bench YT show
« on: Wed Aug, 23, 2017, 11:50:PM »
Well, now that the first build for my YT show The Model Bench is finished, the Polar Lights 1/1000 TOS Enterprise and Botany Bay, I figured I'd share pics.

Enterprise herself looks a bit heavily weathered, but the pair looks good together

Yeah, I ended up going heavier with the weathering than I wanted to - I wanted to replicate the 11 footer with it's subtlety, but was so focused on matching the weathering patterns in the reference pictures I went too heavy. >.< Not really happy with that, but not much I can do now. Still think the BB is redder than I wanted, I wanted again to match the photos of the actual model. That I may still do. And I do agree they look good together. Thanks much!

I think she looks great with the extra weathering- the ship certainly took some knocks during episodes like Balance of Terror or The Doomsday Machine- just claim it's from those episodes.
