Waiting for the Primer to dry.

First photo- Gluing the Bussard domes onto the engines, and patiently waiting for them to dry.
Image

Process complete- Gloss coat applied, decals applied, 2nd gloss coat, and Flat finish. Now mounted- here is a rear view.
Image

Front view with the ventral spine detailed. And guess what, I just now noticed the window problems on the saucer. Best time to discover such eh?
Image

I chose- Karf. Because as near as I can tell- Derf is Fred, backwards. Karf is - Frak backwards, keeping with the four letter ident, along with a homage to an expletive from another sci-fi series.
Image

Part of my research I chose to look for any other kitted versions of the Derf.

I couldn't find any. Oh yes, plenty of drawings and 3d designs, but no actual kitted ones.

I guess I'm the first.

So- one conversion kit from Starship modelers: Larson class, modified.
A JT Graphics A,B,C deck conversion part.
Two warp engines from a Polar Lights kit.
Decals from: Starship modeler kit, several from the Polar lights. a few from PNT models, and a couple or three from JT graphics again.

That was Batman's nickname for Robin before they settled on "Boy Wonder". :shock:

Also, this is among the coolest TOS style ships I've seen. Nice.

Very nice, Moon! You added some really nice touches on the paint job. Props to you on the name
