USS Reliant Resin Kit from JD Model

Post by Viz » Sun Dec 23, 2018 11:12 am

Firstly this is my first Major post . If I am breaking any rules please let me know and forgive me. I will make the necessary changes.

Firstly I am super excited about this . The Wrath Of Khan has long been one of my favourite Trek movies. I already have a the TOS Space Seed SS Botany bay from Fantastic Plastic and both a TOS and Refit kits from Polar lights. Now that I have this one in the same scale and well I am going to scream it Boldly:

KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN

Recieved 3 Days ago. I also noticed that no one has posted pics of this kit yet so I thought some of you might be interested.

If anyone is interested i have more detailed pics that I can post

This is a model we have not seen before. I need to eat some cheese so I am waiting with baited breath. Pray continue.

PS: The rules around here are not uptight. If you are not attacking anyone you are good pretty much. Tell the truth about the model. Good, bad, yes we want to know.

Well you going to have to wait A while. I am busy with one build first with everything thrown in.

Also This is just the one model

Image

This is the all the models in this a single build.

Image

The 1/350 SS Botany BayImage

The Polar Lights USS Enterpise Refit

Image

The 1/350 Reliant

Image
The Polar Lights 1/350 TOS Enterpise

Image

I am thinking of mounting them on two connected L shaped lightboxes with a Starfield base And a Mutara Nebula background for the Reliant vs refit .I am planning to use a starfield as a background on the SS Botony Bay/TOS
Of course i am planning to light up everything and add sounds etc to the models, the base and the backdrop.

This is what I am imagining hopefully it works out,

Yes it is going to be very.very big.

just one suggestion. use the upload function at ast and place them inline. alternatively, use imgur to host the pics. the ''proudly hosted by photobucket'' watermark is a bit big and in your face.
