Klingon BoP

Recommended Posts

Next in line a Klingon Bird of Prey I figured I have owned for near 20 years. The amount of dust on the box art was astounding.

 

Looks to be even simpler then the NX-01 was. Paint will be what will save or destroy this build.

Going to be a while before I start 3 12 hour shifts this weekend then I teach 5 days next week.

Finally got 5 minutes to build......Literally THIS took all of 5 minutes.

So while the boss let me be for another 10 minutes, so I built up the main fuselage.

Model was pretty much built in half an hour. But the major assemblies will be painted separately to make it easier.

 

Base colour.....

Rough colour hit. This being a Klingon will not be up to "Starfleet aesthetics"

Nice result! It seems there is more painting than assembling on these ST kits. The end result is worth the effort though.

Looking good.        (I had some computer struggles this weekend which delayed the response.)  Plenty of people enjoying the build pictures I'm sure!

... Worry not Gents ... we're all watching this!

 

Geez Phantom ... I can't get over the speed you work at! Way ta go!

 

And I hafta say, regarding your avatar ... years ago, when I listened to Q 107 and they had the "Coach" ... you've reminded me of that character ... I may have to refer to you as Coach ... from time to time!  :rolleyes:
