^You said it.

It is already epic as she is now, but she will be even more so when completed.

Thank you.
I did the piping along the back of the bridge.

I cannot believe how crisp and clean this all looks. Positively stunning!

Re: Studio Scale K'tinga

YES!

I think I've finally found a rough/unfinished surface in one of REL's works! If you look along the back of the platform that holds the bridge, to the left of the trunk that has all the amazing piping, there's a panel with a rough seam that might need more putty and a bit of sanding.

Or maybe it's just a bit of dust.

Its amazing that it's this hard to find a flaw in REL's models.

If I didn't know better would say these were shots of the studio build. Awesome work!

Honestly, I would be surprised if REL's work wasn't better than the original studio build.

Re: Studio Scale K'tinga

Thanks everyone.

I'm working on the neck now.

First make cross sections out of plexiglass.

Then fill them in and sculpt them to shape, in this case a combo of 15lb rigid foam and bondo.


Then vac form styrene over them so I have something to detail. I did this twice because of the layered details.

K'tinga Neck vacforming - YouTube

After that I can cut the parts out and start detailing them.




Psion, thanks for spotting that, sometimes I don't see mistakes until I take pics of it, LOL.

Drat. That means you're back to inhumanly perfect.

Honestly, I admire not just the workmanship, but the mindset that you exhibit. From what little I recall glimpsing from your videos, your work area is very tidy, too.

Thanks. But I cleaned up that space before I did the video, LOL. Usually I can't find anything in that mess.

Re: Studio Scale K'tinga

Now, in some of the blueprints--if not ST:TMP itself--we see tiny little disruptor turrets. Are you going to do a few as add on options?

The turrets parts are from the 1/76 Panzer Kampfwagen I, Russian T-34, and the 1/350 Tamiya USS Enterprise.




Working on the neck now.

Anyone seen my jaw around here? It seems to have fallen off.

Amazing work there, REL! I love the attention to detail you have. And it's all those tiny details that really give it a sense of scale.

Re: Studio Scale K'tinga

What do you do with these enormous models? Are they commissioned works for a client who takes possession when they're done? Do you just have a room full of giant awesome model starships? Are you planning a museum?

(I ask that last one tongue-in-cheek, but, seriously, you should work for a museum...)

P.S. I find that every time I look at this thread, I notice I'm whistling the Klingon Theme from the TMP score by the time I close it.

Good work!

And Rel -- are you gonna drink that Dr. Pepper?
