Klingon D-7

Post by trekriffic » Mon Oct 15, 2012 11:25 pm

This is my Klingon D-7 from STTOS.
Definitely a vintage design at this point; still, nothing says predator quite like the old D-7 in my opinion.

Whereas the simple base looked better with ulvdemon's "E", your multi-colored trifoil really enhances the monotone grey color of the D7. It draws your eyes to the trifoil decals and makes them pop. Nice job!

I built mine just after the kit came out, and I really should build another one. I think I have two or three left in my stockpile. The photos were taken years ago, with a crummy digital camera, in less that good lighting (single overhead incandescent with the camera flash).

I really need to do an updated photo shoot of my older 1:1000 kits, with my tripod and good overhead CFL lighting. Maybe now that the weather is getting colder, and I'm spending more time inside in the evenings, rather than being busy with yard work and other "outside" activities.

Lonewolf,

Nice job! I see you went with the red impulse engine in the stern like I did. I also see you chose to go with the studio-model-correct light green and grey-violet colors which looked grey on screen back on my parent's 60's era television. I had planned to do the same color scheme on the AMT reissued 1/650th D-7 if I ever get one.
For this build I went with a more "screen-accurate" look; the upper hull is only lightly tinted using grey mixed with Testors Napoleonic Violet but it's so subtle you can't see it in these photographs.
