A little less "different" than my previous kitbash...

I was going to build the Dark Star Grissom right out of the box, then I noticed I had an extra Dark Star Refit saucer, then it all went out of control from there.










Something went horribly wrong with the hand-brushing of the dark metallic on the grills, which I only noticed on the photos in the harsh light. I guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet and mask it and airbrush it, even though I'm sure the masking will rip up the surrounding paint. So I wanted to get these photos out there before I ruined the poor thing!

Oh, and I now completely hate the aztec wallpaper-decal technique. You'll notice I stopped before I got to the nacelles. OY!

Nice work - the ship looks ugly though.

Awesome & imaginative work as always.

It looks to me, from the second shot, that the molding is a little sloppy on the nacelles.

Re: A little less "different" than my previous kitbash...

Oh, and I'm aware of the irony that I, who have always argued for the Grissom's pod to be automated and uninhabited, put window decals on the top bulge of the pod. I'm figgering a maintenence/control room up there, infrequently manned and accessible only by transporter.

^ I'm still for having diagonal turbolift shafts in the pylons. The magnetics could be used to keep the pod "upright" as well as moving it.

24th century equivalent to the St.Louis arch.

Still, transporters could be used in a pinch.

I like Jefferies tubes with perhaps a small chair to ride.

I guess it depends on how thick those things are.

They are the narrowest parts on a given ship, but could easily be 20' thick.

Re: A little less "different" than my previous kitbash...

How long does it take for you make one of these things? Assuming you already have an idea, and the parts on hand, how long from starting the actual build to the final photos?

I want to hate it,

but I can't. Because it's actually pretty cool.
