Damn at 1/1400 scale the phaser decals on the Voyager kit suck!!! They’re teeny tiny!!! And I had to resize them from the revel large kit!!! Also you can see starfleet has added the kanji version of the Soyokaze name to her hull as well...

Still have work on the bottom of the Hephaestus, but I think I’m finally done (minus sealing) with the Nostromo.

Still have those teeny tiny phaser decals to do, and the lower life boats... but the Hephaestus is pretty much done now too...

So was able to work a little bit more on the Frankenfleet today. And I have come to really appreciate how nice and clean the lines are on the wolf 359 ships that Paul01 has made. I am currently working on the StarCrafs’ Springfield class And realizing just how the extra detail which Dennis has scribed in makes it that much harder to do the paint scheme in the sand way as I have been. But I’m trying to overcome it ... oh and I have 111 lifeboats to add still... :(

Here is what I’ve gotten done of the USS Tau’Ri NCC-57344, She’s not my cleanest work but just like Pokémon got to catch ‘em all:

And for the last picture, from left to right, USS Nostromo, USS Soyokaze, USS Auriga, USS Hephaestus, USS Tau’Ri and the USS San Francisco.

I think I like this better than the overly busy usual method.

Well, I may have over done it then... now no where near what it is supposed to be if you believe all the “details”.

But here is the bottom, I’ll work on the top tomorrow..:

Yup, Definitely overdid it slightly. But it still looks pretty good to me I’d say about 90% of what I wanted!

So here is the Frankenfleet (so far):

Well she’s not quite done yet, no decals and there still some work to do on her larger warp engines... Here’s a look at the mostly completed USS Blade Runner.
