Thanks for the kind words guys :)

I belief I just used a plain white rattle can. I can’t remember the exact brand. It may have been a white primer which I just sprayed clear gloss over the top? I can’t really remember to be completely honest.

Excellent work as always, Andy. And ditto on that deflector dish!

Beautiful work Andyh! I've always loved the Excelsior class and you did this model justice.

Thanks all. I took about 5 years to finally get this one off the bench! I hope to do the Enterprise B version a bit quicker though.
