I appreciate the thought, Nova. Thank you 🙏🏼

On a brighter note, the paint job on my littlest escort is pretty much done! I am going to name her the USS Arx:

That band of navy blue around the bridge is a fine tip Sharpie, and the gray circle is pencil. To prevent smearing when I apply topcoats, I covered the dorsal surface with a couple of thin gesso washes. Here are some other views:

Here is my Memorial Day weekend progress! I got most of the masking done on the Defiant and Gallant class ships (I decided to sideline Gallant #2). The detail work is progressing pretty well, too. More of the same next weekend plus a lot of touch ups!

Last but not least, my littlest (Valiant/SP/whatever class) escort is finished! I give you the USS ARX:

Your paint work (especially on the little printed model) is SHARP!!!! Great progress, it's nice to have a free weekend to just chill & model.

Detail work and touch ups on my Defiant and Gallant are pretty much done. Ready for decals! The Defiant is going to be the class name with São Paulo registry #, and the Gallant will be the USS Valorous (one of the names from the original Nova Hobbies kit decal set).

My little flotilla of escorts is finished! Presenting the USS Valorous:

Well done for finishing, they look superb.

You've inspired me to start my Defiant next week after a good 6 months break from proper modeling.

Excellent! Nice to know I’m contributing to the ideas/inspiration pool. It’s what I like about forums such as these.

I may be taking a summer break from new model builds. I am taking a summer art class that starts in a couple weeks; I would kind of like to focus on that. We’ll see
