When you finish this beauty I would christen it, " Grand Protector of the Realm"!

:bow:

Hmm...Sounds very British doesn't it?

Honestly, I'd rank it right up there with my own Leif Ericson build.

I immediately thought "HMS Cromwell" would have been a great name for this! And, yes, it's soooo very British!

Thanks, Steve! I loved that build! Thankfully the pic links weren't broken! As you know, most, if not all, of your builds serve to inspire me on my own builds! So thank you very much!

Hey, Guys!

Hope this finds you furiously building!

RL caught up with me as my family expanded by 1 last week. Mrs. MSgt is still there taking care of the little tyke so I can spend more time in the garage painting. :lol:

Okay, did some more work last night and was able to get the ventral of the Port wing and the dorsal of the SBRD wing done. It looked so nice I had to share!

I'm hoping to get the wings done this week and then start on the grey areas while I wait for some masks from another builder. (I just gotta get him the pattern. ;) )

Thanks, as always, for the supportive comments and the viewing!

Thanks very much, Steve! I am really thrilled it is turning out so well! I was able to get the wings done and sealed so I think I will start on the grey areas next.

Thanks, Doc! There is always a difference between planning and execution but, in this case, the difference wasn't very large! Now if I can do as well on the rest of it!

Thanks for the encouragement and support! And Thanks for reading and commenting!

Good day, My Fellow Modelers!

I hope your weekend was very productive!!

So, I was able to get some paint on it (well, MORE paint on it) this weekend. I got the recesses on the Ventral of the wings painted. I HAD to rewatch the film to make sure the color was close enough! ;D

I am so leery of overspray, I'm afraid the masking for this was a bit excessive. Ah well.

I did get the bussard collectors painted as well as the plasma cannons on the dorsal of the primary hull. I also added one color of dark grey the dorsal of the engine pods.

The CM was tricky. I wanted to leave the horizontal surfaces white with the angled surfaces light grey. I used masking fluid on the horizontal surafaces but when I went to peel it off, the paint looked like I painted it with my eyes closed. The more I used that stuff the more I know I don't like it. So, I did what I should have to at the start - hand painted it. I am pretty happy with how it turned out though.

Meatloafr has used his mask cutter to cut out, uhm, masks for the dorsal of the primary hull and they will be on their way soon. I will try to get as far as I can, up to before decals, while I wait for the masks. I need to finish the display stand and the painting of the ship (touch ups and small areas) but I think I see the finish line in sight!

Stay tuned for more exciting updates!

Steve
