D-10 Riskadh, IKS Bat'leth

Post by Griffworks » Mon Aug 21, 2017 5:30 am

From Miscellaneous Models, sold thru Federation Models and mastered by Scott Scariott. It's a pretty simple kit, with only 5 parts. No base, nor do I think it included decals.

I added some WAVE Option System parts for the impulse engines, aft photorp tube and some heavy disrupters.

Still trying to decide what color to go with. Looking to go mostly TOS, but will keep it grey, not likely to add any green or purple.

I had a request for info on the length of the kit, as well as a comparison to the D-7 kit. So, here you are!

The dimensions are - approximately - 11.75" /30cm long by 7" / 17.7cm wide, once assembled. Good sized for a Klingon ship in 1/1000!

Next to Gr'oth.

I've started on the base coat. I decided to go with a sort of end of TOS/Phase II timeframe, so a solid color for this and the D-11: AS-2 Light Gray (IJN). Pics after the base coat is complete.

As I said earlier, I decided to go with Tamiya rattlecan AS-2 Light Gray (IJN) for the base coat, both for the D-10 and the D-11.

Close up of the heavy disruptors. These are on the tip of each of the forward "wings", and I intend for them to have a roughly 10• arc of independent fire. Enough to allow to fire other than *just* straight ahead.

I figured you already had one.

Yes, definitely get one for your Klingon fleet!

Nah, I wasn't convinced about the look of it until I saw your build. I thought the proportions were off. You convinced me it really is a beast.

*BUMP!* 'Cause it's been a while since I updated any pics! Nothing major to show, just some reminder of the sexy of Klingon ships.

I hope to do some detail painting this weekend. These two will definitely be a part of that.

Thanks. It's been a fun ride.

I've got another that I picked up in a trade with Kratok - who's sadly no longer here - and intend to build it at some point in the future. This one, tho, will be a TMP Era ship, so I plan to use K'T'Inga nacelles and command pod parts, as well as add hull plating decals.
