ISS Exeter

Post by sando6569 » Sat Jun 02, 2018 12:03 pm

This was originally going to be a lit TOS Enterprise, it failed. Instead of throwing it away I decided to try and make something out of it. A few toothpicks, super glue, plastic card, putty and then....

Is it finished yet ?
If not, if I might suggest, why not modify it so it will be closer to the ISS ships seen in “Star Trek Of Gods and Men”

Nicely done! I like the changes you did to the model, such as the pylons.

I love the weathering effect! It's really unique, well done.

Do you have any views of what appears to be the photorp deck? Or even straight on to show that area? I'm kind of curious to know what you did that in that area, as well as straight aft.

These are the best I could get, I didn't take any in progress pics...

The decals were done with a scan of the PL decal sheet, the mirrorverse pennant I found on the net, cleaned it up and resized. I chose which parts to use from scanned image and printed a new decal sheet.

Oh, dang! Forgot to say "Thanks" for those additional views! I appreciate it.

And thanks for sharing!
