I got them assembled and started smoothing out rough spots. Some parts I left unglued so I can paint easier and apply decals then put together. They are really detailed but some of the details are fine so I'm hoping it shows under paint. Grissom went together pretty easy, the bird of Prey had an issue with the right wing. For some reason it just didn't want to fit right and I had to make some modifications. The bird of Prey also had to have a lot of slop trimmed off around a few of the parts.

I've been working on some of the paint work. I've got base coats down and started to do some detail work. I've got more done on the BoP currently but hope to get both ready for decalls in the next day or two. I'll try and get some more pics up soon.

Although looking st the pics I do see a couple of spots I need to touch up,

The kit is overall pretty nice. Parts fit nicely and lots of detail. There are lots of decals but they are somewhat brittle and a few were oversized.

The Oberth will probably never be a ship I like, but this kit turned out really nice. Great work!

Thanks. It was a fun kit to do but left me wanting to do a bigger more elaborate one. Lol.
