Finishing up the decals:

All cut and ready to go:
Image

First decal of the night, and first broken decal – broke as I moved it after I got it wet
Image
Luckily I got it to line up good
Image

And more beauty shots:

Can you see the second broken decal in this shot?
This one broke of my own error – decal was drying out to much before I got to it.
Image
Image
(it’s the left side pennant stripe)

I put the inboard registry decals a little to far forward
Image
Image



I’m off to finish the small detail paintings and the final clear coat to seal everything in

I know of two independent hobby shops who have gotten their shipments of Defiant's in yesterday. I have hope I'll see one by weeks end!

Have the Defiant all finished – now for some EYE CANDY!!

I lost one set of the window decals for the nose section
Image
Image
Image
Image


Really glad the name of the ship went back together well after it broke
Image
Image


My biggest complait is some of these decals on compound curves don’t lay down to well
Image


The second broken decal also is hidden very well

Pinstrip decals are not sized properly:
Image
this one is to long
Image
this one is not placed correctly - to long on the short section, and not long enough on the long section
Image


Here’s a few with a Miranda Class for size comparison

Nicely done. I admired one at the Round 2 table.
