Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

Thanks everyone.

I'm leaning more towards a Kronos color scheme with this, but not so elaborate as this is just a ship of the line vessel and not a command ship. Maybe a greenish grey hull color, with more grey than green, and with maroon accents.

Wow. Your design is great and the fully realized product is amazing. Well done.

The ship is very similar to some of the designs in "Klingon Academy". I see similar aspects in the Accuser-class dreadnought and Emperor-class battlecruiser, and some others.

Perhaps the green elements of the hull color ought to be in more of a sage green, rather than the traditional olive. In the low-lighting picture of the nacelle lighting, the green light makes the hull seem kind of sage-y, which I think looks pretty good.

Always like the Kronos One color scheme.

More work on the pylons. The warp grills aren't attached yet, they won't be fitted until after paint.

Very nice work.

I'm always amazed at how crafty people can be when I see model work of this particular detail.

Are you creating molds of some sort?

I really have no idea what goes into making something wonderful like this and if you wouldn't mind giving some background for newbie amateurs and fans, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks. (Fantastic Reinterpretation of a classic design.)

Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

Thank you very much. I would be happy to write up what I used and how if you'd like.

I primered the top to check my work.

Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

I've seen a lot of fan designs look gorgeous, and a lot of em look sexy, but I can't say I've seen many that look right.

This looks right.

Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

I'm just amazed at how perfect it all is. I'd swear it was a model in 3D software except sometimes there are real-world bits in it that prove I'm wrong.

This is one of those very few non canon designs that should be considered otherwise.

When you finish that you need to tackle a Romulan warbird. If this is an indication it would be awesome!

No, no, no, no! Don't thank me, son. I'm gonna have you dragged out of your house and burned at the stake for witchcraft unless you prove this is simple craftmanship. Only someone who has consorted with Lucifer himself can possibly throw together a model of this quality with plexiglass and a few scraps of styrene.

Can you show some photos of the entire process of development for something like this little piece? Like the rest of the ship you're building, this bridge looks fantastic, but there it is nearly finished. It's been glued together, primed, sanded, and then attached to another piece and puttied and sanded ... but ... would it be possible for you to slow down on one of these components and show the design sketch, the raw components, then the assembly process step-by-step, before you get to this part? Just a handful of detailed images or one big collage or something?

'Cause otherwise, I'm gathering kindling.
