LOL, thanks man.

On an irritating note, remember those decals for the station? The seriously wrong-headed things that matched no natural curve of the hull and kept trying to break into a million pieces? Yeah. They have now permanently bonded to the hull with the force similar to the gravity of a neutron star, and are stubbornly, steadfastedly refusing to come off unless it's micron by micron. I've got them soaking in a little windex right now, but....MAN. Will this project never end?? :lol:

Ok, so a little cleanup is still in order for the area where I removed the decal, BUUUT....it's gone, and some new decals are in place. Hope you like.

Looks phenominal. Lots of hard work paid off right there.

Woohoo! Cue the outro trumpet theme to TOS,
"duh dah-dah-dah duh-duh-daaah!"

that is one mighty fine K7 station, fully aztec'd. replete with the 'little' bonaventure, very nice!
can I be a super pain, and ask for eyecandy to see what this thing looks like at night/in a dark environment?
(with a blacklight'd be the icing on the cake) :lol:

top stuff!

Great job!

Very nice! By the way, your work on the dome base inspired me to try painting one myself. Link to photo

Certainly makes my want to consider having a go at the K7 station. I tried once before but got frustrated with it (I'm too much of a rivet counter at times) :)

And now that I've seen THIS online, I'm thinking of popping the towers off of my build and redoing them COMPLETELY. Look at these!

Of course, if I do this, I'll do it later down the road. I'm ready to call this done. For a few months anyway. :lol:

Andy, just build this as an alternate station. I don't think there's a single accurate part on this model that matches the studio model. Not one.
