My latest project is a break from the ocean liners Ive been working on, and is a ship Ive wanted to build for a while now.

Im not doing her on screen paint job, and am kind of doing my own thing with her. Kind of a mix of TOS and TMP colors.

Not done yet, detailing painting now that the pearl white base coat is on everything.

Looking good so far, I'm totally on-board with your colour scheme idea. Can't wait to see how it pans out. Your paint skills far exceed mine :)

Side note, what type of TNG phaser prop is that in the background? 😉

Update on the Enterprise.

The saucer is done being painted, and that means Im done painting completely. All thats left is assembly and the decals. I may still pencil in the panel lines, not 100% sure though.

Great job. It's so odd seeing her like this - but it feels more comfortable and interesting for sure. The paint instructions on that model always befuddle me - those dark rings around middle of the saucer don't stand out at all on screen.

A lot of the super dark decals like those rings are actually really light on the CGI model, not sure why Revell made them so dark. I didn't use a lot of those dark decals because I don't like how they look, but I felt those rings worked pretty well. 

 

The decals were also trash, a lot of them broke during application. Wish Polar Lights would make one, they'd probably do better since all their newer kits I've built have been great.
