Hello Guys


Building the 18 inch retooled Generations Enterprise D. The kit is great.... New tooling allows now a dome base with metal rod, the kit is cast in clear for lighting (Mine won't be lit).... I also bought the 6 page set of Aztec decals from AMT, who had the best decal producers, Cartograf of Italy, make some amazing Generations decals.

I'm in the process of building sub assemblies.... Lots of work but it's all good fun....

I will post pictures soon....

Thanks gentlemen...... This has been a difficult build so far...... The secondary hull has some fit issues but I finally have the old gal looking proper. Tons of sanding and filling..... As soon as I get some time to go on Imgur I will upload some shots.


I have the top of the saucer completely decaled with the Aztec..... Unfortunately the company made the color variation on the various panels very stark..... I'm going to thin out some light ghost grey and mist the ship lightly to bring a more cohesive look without overpowering the aztec.....

Tons of work......

The saucer was a test run.... I really like the paint misting.... It toned down the toy like aztek.....
