Old school Trek lol

Would have be AWSOME to have fitted an LED in the front section so the little windows lit up saw an Enterprise done like that and it looked fantastic, great job on your build tho

Cheers

Very nice job, Carl. What was she like to build?

Thanks. Went together very well, a good fit for all parts with minimal filling needed. A nice fast build.

Excellent, thanks. I now regret not picking up a cheap one from Modelzone before their website went offline.

Great stuff, picked one up today from Modelzone for just under a tenner. What paints have you used for the overall colour?

It was sprayed with one of the Tamiya greys - Sorry don't remember which one! I also sprayed some patches that were lightened a little and used a Promodeller/Flory dark wash.

My attempt at this release from Revell

Image

The Klingon D7 Battle Cruiser was designed by Matt Jeffers for the original Star Trek series to look threatening even vicious. It was produced for the episode “Elaan of Troyius” however as the episodes were not screened in production order the vessels actually first appeared in “The Enterprise Incident” so this iconic Klingon vessel's was first seen as a Romulan.

The kit goes together very well certainly better than the AMT version I built many years ago, the only slight issue I had was attaching the neck to the primary hull and would recommend the kit from an ease of build point of view.

Some artistic licence has been taken with the scheme. I found the suggested shade of grey a little light for my liking so completed it in various greys doing the “Aztec” freehand. Using slate grey and dark slate grey has resulted in the green looking markings which gives it a slight Bird Of Prey appearance.

what a lovely set of builds. I'm looking at adding one to build up my ST collection again. I currently only have the Micro Machine versions of some ships.
