My build of of the Klingon Bird of Prey:

Here she is pre-assembled.

the nice thing with snap kits is that you can but them together before you paint.
IMG_0598.JPEG
She's pretty from the back too.

Solid black coat

I mixed up my own green for her, I wasn't quite happy with it but I fixed that later.
IMG_0601.JPEG
Added some more black for shadows and weathering
IMG_0602.JPEG
Added a coat of Tamiya green clear to bump up the green and make it more vibrant.
IMG_0605.JPEG
Added detail painting to the wings. I also used Vallejo Steel metal color on the.. grills?.. is that what they are called?
IMG_0607.JPEG
The back view.
IMG_0611.JPEG
The underside, I tried to keep the paint red-rust-ish color

Beauty shot one
IMG_0614.JPEG
Beauty shot two

Beauty shot three
I did the entire model in about 12 hours off and on over two days. I really enjoyed doing this one and if you have the chance to pick up the Grissiom/ Bird of Prey kit, I would do so. I think it is a good kit.

Interesting paint scheme to say the least.

Nice job! Reminds of the "richer" green colors that got used a lot in the TNG era birds of prey. Well done!
