Tim,
I think all the adjectives to describe this are taken so far....Tremendous feat sir! I would be hard pressed not to even paint her. Unbelievable as she sits....Well done! :eek:

;D And Millican will smile too when he sees that... hehe I dry-fitted the whole ship together one night and it looked really good just like it was, not realistic, but good in another sort of way if you know what I mean. Anyway, so I told Scott I was gonna leave it like that 'cause it looked cool i thought...you know... different. He really didnt say anything, but I could tell he thought I was nuts. He then took me over to the paint display and helped me find the proper Kure Grey...and that was the end of my Br'ass Yammy. ;)

Ahhhh, I didn't think you were nuts, I just thought "Why is he doing an ad for Voyager!" LOL

I think it would look cool either way, and hadn't realized you primed the parts before putting the brass on, which the darker grey primer (as opposed to the lighter grey plastic) makes the brass pop.

Either way it will look cool, I just think that as good as it looks in primer grey and brass, it will look even better painted, and weathered.

hehe...well, as always when it comes the hobby, Scott's the man.

To be honest (*nice change for me) I'm afraid I'm going to ruin the thing with a bad paint job ... enthusiasm + ignorance followed by regret and shame :) <--- *edit HA! Sounds like my honeymoon! lol

With the skill (OCD lol) you already have, I refuse to believe you are capable of a bad paint job.
It's just like a catalogue for all the PE available for that kit. All perfectly applied.

Congratulations, Confortablynumb.

I´m astonished.

At that scale, I think that it´s required a extreme skill to fix PE parts to the plastic ones in a so neatly and clean way.

You have steady hand, almost a "precission machine grade".

Cheers.
