score
this is coming together nicely.
aztecing to date is just, wow. the join around the bridgemodule must have been hair-pulling,
but look at how straight-edged and even that is.
I'm looking forward to seeing it altogether,
as that lighting is looking nicely blocked and very even.

thanks for sharing!

SO here is the bottom of the Saucer, decided to Modify the paint scheme here... I thought that some Caution outlines would make this look just that much better...

Here's a wider view...

And how about a Registry Number?

And A Ship Name and Registry Number....

Lights out, Lights on!

As Above, so Below.

Now if your wondering why the Sulaco get's the 1807 Registry, well, Aliens was release July 18th, 1986.... so it fit the time line for a ship built after the Big E, yet Not before the Excelsior's 2000.... ;)

That extra warning markings have turned out looking great, thus far!

Wait a minute. Sorry about that display of emotion, awe and dumbfoundedness.

But...

Where did you get the decals from? Also, how did you get the wings properly glued on? I tried it on the undiscovered country enterprise and the winged drooped and even broke after I put the nacells on. Any advice on that too?

If you are asking in regards to the registry and name, Made those. I learned from Del, and a few others here on Allscaletrek.com.... if you are asking about the Caution yellow/black, that's paint.

Again, here If you are using the 1/537 Enterprise that kit is much weaker and would require quite a bit of added support to not warp the engine nacelles (get it "warp".... :lol: ) the 1/350 kit is much sturdier and lock in so much easier (structurally speaking- there was some minor alignment issues that putty covered up nicely)....
