Here are the latest images from my build. Completed the nacelles. Just some minor touch ups if on the blue. Also completed the Aztec decals for the top nearest the bridge. Still looking into how to complete the same on the bottom next to the sensor dome.

...and yes, the blue on the front was a pain to put on! :x

I'm actually glad to see someone use those aztec decals as this is going to be my next build. I'm excited to see how the rest of the decals look on her. She is looking really good so far.

They look great, but I had some fit issues. Unknown if it was with the decals themselves or operator error regarding reading the picture guide that came with them. I had to look at a lot of other sources to get an idea on where some of them go.

Almost done. Nacelles attached to the pylons (Hopefully they stay on!) Tonight I will attach the saucer and hopefully get the last of the decals and the last of the minor painting completed.

Re: 1/537 Refit - DONE!

Well, I guess I can call this one done. I will save the lessons learned for later, but if were ever considering JTGraphics decals for a build, use them! Worked well and the only issues I had were for the bigger decals and that was because I didn't trim them to a more manageable size before putting them on the model.

Enjoy...

Looking good mon.
