Just ordered my first FUD from SW.
From CE I have ordered a smooth Abrams. Hopefully I can do it justice.

When I built the B I noticed the nacelles were out of whack.
I ended up using a heatgun to bend them into alignment.
Had to be really careful not to melt it.

When I rebuild my B, I need to make something about that ventral hangar

Done some filling around the neck/saucer and one of the nacelle to pylon joins on my Refit. The one with seperate deflector dish.
Also put the nacelles on a Surya with a little help from some self raising flour. I don't have any baking powder. lol
Started cleaning up my UGH D4.

First Cardie is going together as well as a second.
First is the Galor from AMT DS9 kit
Second is a little OS Ermac scout. Not even two inches long but I like this little kit.

I should be able to do a two tone for the plating as the raised areas are quite prominent. Almost like on the contender saucer

I haven't figured out what I'm going to do. Likely I'll go the base coat/detail paint/wallpaper decal route, like I've done with the other Cardies

Ordered a few MVM ships to be getting on with including the NTC Venture. It just looks super-sleek.
