Els Posted April 15, 2020 Share Posted April 15, 2020 I was wandering around my local Michael's about a month ago and decided to check and see if they still had the same 11 kits on the shelf that they have been selling for the past 5 five years when to my surprise I found that they had the 1:1000 Star Trek NX-01 kit. I have been wanting one of these for a while so a discount code later and it was on its way home with me. It is a nice little kit and has several options to build. I decided to go a little different with the paint. Instead of aztecing it I just mottled different metallic shades over it. I found a cool picture of a planet on the web and tried to recreate it on the dome base. I should have stopped with just the planet because when I tried to paint clouds it messed it up a bit. 02 by Hal Elsberry, on Flickr 04 by Hal Elsberry, on Flickr 06 by Hal Elsberry, on Flickr 07 by Hal Elsberry, on Flickr Since I had a lot of parts and decals left over and I was bored from staying at home I decided to use the stuff on an old 1:1000 Klingon D7 kit that I have been using to test paints on for about 10 years. So I used the additional secondary hull that was supposed to be for the NX refit and the Mirror Universe decals. This is how it turned out... 03 by Hal Elsberry, on Flickr 04 by Hal Elsberry, on Flickr 06 by Hal Elsberry, on Flickr 07 by Hal Elsberry, on Flickr 08 by Hal Elsberry, on Flickr 09 by Hal Elsberry, on Flickr Quote Link to post Share on other sites
