Another K'Tinga...kinda - FINISHED

Post by Mac204 » Tue Aug 04, 2015 11:25 pm

I'm working on an original K'Tinga. A lot of the parts are warped so it's taking me a minute. not going to do any aftermarket parts either. Mainly just doing it for practice hoping for a good outcome. So, While I take my time dealing with the tediousness of filling and sanding I got most of the base and mount done...The Klingon Emblem isn't glued down as I'm not quite sure exactly where I want it yet.

I see it's running with its cloaking device on. ;)

is that klingon logo relief 'embossed'? it looks to be raised somewhat
that is a lot of texture to it - it looks like it was cut directly from a bulkhead or door entry way
and seamlessly attached to the base.

Perhaps at an irregular angle, with some dark and some of the lighter blue behind the logo?
It was wise to hold off against attaching the logo, as,
it will be the finishing touch once the model is completed and you can decide the best viewing angle.

If you intend the base to be diamond-shaped, with a point towards the viewer,
the logo would make sense to place near point of the display arm.
I'm sure, wherever it is ultimately affixed, the completed model will look awesome, if this presentation stand alone is anything to go by.

Funny :)

I think I saw a disturbance in the Tachyon field :)

Love the stand, wherever the Klingon Emblem is!

It is said that the woman makes the man. The stand/display goes a long ways towards promoting the model.

I actually made a template for each of the pieces of the Klingon emblem and cut each individual piece from styrene and glued it all together. Then I took a hot soldering iron to damage it up. Then I painted it up. My thought was that it was actually a battle worn piece from a bulkhead that was being included with the model of it.

@Mac204,
thanks for that insight,
sweet... the resulting awesome meets the envisaged design brief - it does indeed look like part of a panel or the inside of a klingon vehicle. did you happen to have a template of that?
|It'd be an interesting technique for the Romero 1:4000 Cube (you heard that right folks, someone has made a 1:4000 Borg Cube kit for under 200USD; it's huge) |

How are you finding the neck details on your kit?
I have in the past been frustrated and broken a battlecruiser, due to the photoetch and detail styrene not gluing properly hehehe :lol:

After a long delay I have started back up on this model. I finally got her to decloak!! Here's a teaser... Still have a good bit of painting and weathering to do...
