@gidiot,
awesome voyagers; I look forward to seeing them completed.
USS Gateaux looks quite awesome.

tangent time;
there's a 'fault' with USS Goddel; it appears to be 'complete'. :lol:

Definitely coming along nicely! I like the color scheme you chose - different, but interesting!

I'm having to sort of live vicariously through your builds until my house is moved and unpacked....which could be QUITE a while. Sigh. Movers coming this Thursday, though, so one step at a time.

I bet you will be watching those build boxes with a Vulcans eye. Hope it all goes smoothly for you.

Form2 from Form labs.
Thanks! The prints came out nicely. It does an excellent job

The cost of that printer though... I need to save my pennies if that is ever going to happen (spoiler alert: not bloody likely)

Small update, I decide to tone down the Hellblau to a light (blue) grey... still lots of work to do... just so little free time!!!

I think once I have the Pseudo azteking done I am going to try and spray it again with a light coat of the pearlescent to see if I can minimize the time differences between this and the white. I’m assuming that the reason it’s so much more pronounced on these ones versus the early ones is the basecoat was different. Are used a camouflage Tan for the original ones and this was the white that is supposed to work with the paint I used. Obviously these ones look much darker than the earlier ones. For reference I’ll put a picture of the audacious next to the saucer of the Excelsior class were the only difference is the basecoat the pearlescent is the same and the light gray is the same only it’s much darker on the one with the “correct basecoat“. See below:

A big difference for just a basecoat change. Its almost like they are in two different rooms.

I guess I'll be calling them "Generational" differences like the Grey/Green of the TOS vs the TMP's Whiter look...
