1/2500 Galaxy class. WIP

Believe it or not, I’ve never built one of these.

I’ve added 0.5mm to the trenches in both secondary hull and saucer. I always thought that the trenches looked too narrow.

The only other mod has been sanding all the raised gridwork and adding a missing set of windows (well, the cut out for them) on the bottom of the saucer.

Just in primer so far.

I decided to hide the join between the secondary hull and warp pylons after checking the studio model pics again.

First coat of a custom mix of Testors Duck Egg Blue and a very pale gray (for scale purposes).

Laid the saucer bottom decals to see how it all goes on. As others have reported, the decals crack into largish pieces. Luckily, they cracked into sizes that meant they could still be carefully matched up.

I'm also using some of the decals from the "Absolute Models" decal sheet.

I’m not sure if anyone is following this, but here’s an update on how the decals are going.

I’m noticing quite a few decal details missing from the Round 2 decal sheet so I’ve broken into my Thomas models 1/2500 decals as well as using some from Absolute models decal sheet (I’ll point out the areas of note once I have a clear coat on).

Interesting treatment of the defector.
