This is my second build of this ship in this scale. ST:III, ST:IV and ST:VI have all been on television in the past few weeks and I forgot how much I appreciated this ship when I was a kid. It’s a good design and a good platform for experimenting with panel filters, washes and other weathering techniques.

The buildup was SUPER straight forward. The only two things that I did differently with this build were 1) adding some magnets to the inside of the belly piece for a support rod, thus eliminating the need for a drill-hole for support and 2) replacing the resin cannon barrels with brass tubes and hypodermic needle tips. Very careful drilling was needed for the latter but I think they came out just right.

One other thing that this kit needed was a set of decals to replicate the line pattern that is featured on the front of the hinges. So I sourced up some images from the studio model and made my own decal for the hinge front. :D

She’s all primed up in black and waiting for the first base layer of green zinc chromate and then we’ll work up from there!

More airbrush time results. It’s amazing how much of a difference 10 minutes of painting can show. Other details are from patient brushwork. Some of the red feathers got 2 coats to create variance.
