AMT/ERTL Klingon Bird of Prey - Not sure of scale - COMPLETE

Postby IndianaCook » Wed Aug 31, 2016 7:49 pm

Hi again guys :wavingyellow:
Hope you don't think I'm spamming :lol:

Part of my ongoing monster build plan http://allscaletrek.com/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=3831 was an AMT/ERTL Klingon Bird of Prey. I totally forgot to include it or show you guys any progress I've done on it, which to be honest is really bad as this was the first one of my restoration to complete!

So, while I'm waiting for my Decal Sol and Set, as well as my Enterprise D decals to turn I thought I'd catch you up.

This was the Bird of Prey in her broken state:

I fixed the right wing and filled in the hole that the original stand fit in to with putty. I later sanded it down and painted over it.
Image

This bar fell off while I was handling her. She needed to be handled delicately. You can also see where the stand used to be attached... such a poor effort I did of that :(
Image

Here she is, fix complete, glue drying. Next up, I gave a little upgrade in the paint job. Not much like, just highlighting some details, as I think she had a pretty decent one already :P
Image


And here she is, all complete, weathered a little, slightly upgraded paint job and remounted on her stand

Hope you guys forgive me for not posting this sooner :innocent:

Nice restoration work! I built one of these for the AST Summer 2014 "Make it So" Model Contest. Did lots of weathering and accurizing to go along with LED lighting. I even got the expensive hinge kit with the sliding panels for the wings to move up and down. Anyway, I was pretty pleased with it; and I guess others liked it too since it took first place! :D

Scalewise, I don't think it's ever been determined, but to me it looks to be about 1/350; at least it looked to be about that size when I put it next to my big Enterprise:

Looking great! Hey, question. What color green and other colors did you use for the Klingon Bird of Prey.

I have a K'tinga I want to build and paint, but want to re-imagine a bit by using the same colors as a Klingon Bird of Prey.

Ohhh I couldn't tell you if I'm honest :(

It was quite a while ago that I built it, but I wasn't (and still am not) an expert builder, so I imagine I didn't have anything in mind while picking the colours.

Most likely "standard" red and green... Whatever "standard" means :D


Sorry I couldn't be more help

Ooops I meant the links to the original pictures have been updated, after the photobucket debacle.
