Super kit, super model building craftsmanship. I can't see how it could get any better. :bolian:

WOW, stellar work :techman::bolian::techman:

Personally, Iīm not a big fan of the "weathered" look of the original filming model, but you did an outstanding job of recreating that. Hats off!

The streaks are due to all of that crispy space-amoeba goo stuck to the hull.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone.

Here's another image of the Enterprise in orbit over a terraformed Mars. My friend over on the RPF added lights this time...

Did you sand out the gridlines? That, and the tallywhacker, are the only things I don't like about the kit, even it was was on the model. I never saw it on screen.

Amazing job!

If you enlarge the image in the OP you can make out the tallywacker and you can see the gridlines are still faintly there. Yep, he did an amazing job of it. :techman:

The gridlines were filled with surface filler and sanded smooth. Then I used a hard pencil to draw them back in. Then the pencil lines were oversprayed with a light coat of the hull color to make them very subtle. The "tallywhacker" I have always thought of as the "ion pod" but that's just my opinion. It's hull color with a tiny brass barrel I made painted silver and the tip is painted red.

Since these pics were taken I've given the model it's final coat of Testors semi-gloss lacquer. The only decals, other than the ones in the shuttle launch bay, the bridge, and the triangles on the underside of the saucer, are the footage markers and some signage on the sides of the secondary hull and the saucer. After the semi-gloss went on the carrier film disappeared making the markings look painted on now. All the pennants and ships registration markings were painted on using Orbital Drydock's vinyl paint masks.
