Mo's Shipyard

Post by mophius » Sat Jul 08, 2017 12:21 pm

Well, now I have settled in my job and home life I find myself with more time in the evenings. That being said I still don't find enough time to get to work on these little beauties.

It does actually help having more on the go at one time rather than just concentrating on one.

Got a coat of flat white primer on today and 2 of Light Ghost Grey but I am now unsure as I think it looks a bit dark. Persevere preped for detailing.

Detailing started and going on ok. Next TOS ship has to be a lighter grey though, it does seem to have a bluish cast to it too.

I find that I can't work on just one model at a time

I do as well when I have the dedicated space to work. It keeps the momentum, momenting, put down one to dry, harden etc., pick up a different one.

Persevere coming along nicely and Reliant going well. No time on the others as spending more on Reliant again to get it done.
You can see I tried the copper before red on the bussards and got a little carried away on the edge of the domes.
White bridge dome or not?
