This is a truly stunning model.
Thanks guys!


As Tallguy knows, I'm trying to learn my new (used) camera in the hope of getting some really nice images of my model in the near future. I've been subjecting a test audience (which includes Tallguy) to this learning process. Still learning though.

Ah! Good! You're still around. Listen, just to confirm I'm a total suck-up, I want to throw a thumbs-up your way both here and in that other, closed thread. You do good work, Shaw.

Here's one for each:

Thanks! It means a lot to hear that from people... and it means even more when it is from people who's work I've always enjoyed.


Edit:
If you guys will excuse the mess in the background, here are some images that show the model in fairly true colors as it sits today.

The colors on the D7 look gorgeous, and it's no surprise that Jefferies picked that color scheme.

Re: A Two-Thirds 33 inch Enterprise

Thanks guys!

Yeah, the Klingon (which isn't finished yet) is a practice model. I ran into difficulties while finishing the Enterprise and figured I needed to get more experience with finishing models (painting, detailing and decaling). And the Klingon paint scheme I'd seen on some recent models (like here) looked really interesting.

Even though it isn't done (and I still have a lot of chances to screw it up), I'm pretty happy with it and how it looks near my Enterprise. Here are some shots of the Klingon model (again, it isn't finished yet)...


All and all, it has been a fun model to build. It took about three weeks to get to this point... and then I screwed up the decals and now have to wait to get replacements. No worries though, it is a practice model after all.

Sure, I've taken a lot of shots while practicing with my camera. Just remember that I'm still learning how to build models like this as some of these shots show the shortcomings in my skill level (hopefully I'll do better in my next attempt).


And some color shots before I had finished...

Re: A Two-Thirds 33 inch Enterprise

  1. A few of those shots of the D7 looked so good with clean lines and uniform coloration that they look like CG. I knew it was a physical model, but my eyes kept screaming it was too perfect. (I have very noisy eyes. They're opinionated about CG and get abusive when I drink, too.)
  2. Did anyone else spend too much time sifting through the rubble in the background of the 5:37 AM pictures? I like messy people. They're more like me, and that makes me feel less guilty about being a slob, and they also tend to be more interesting since they don't waste time hiding behind neatness and organization; neat people put effort into hiding themselves in labeled boxes and ordered desks and shouldn't be trusted. Cluttered people "just let it all hang out" -- they don't care if people know what they're doing or interested in. Which makes them kind of neat.

    Um ... cool neat, not tidy neat.

Hear hear! I love checking out people's stuff in messy background images. I'm often surprised by what things random internet pwople have that I also have on my own shelves. Makes sense I guess. If we're on the same sites, we've bound have overlapping interests.

You guys are classic!

Yeah, I'm pretty messy... and while my wife does love that about me, I think she'd like it if I could be neat (tidy neat) a couple days a year.

Re: A Two-Thirds 33 inch Enterprise

Some of the best work I've seen here. i think you said at fed-ref that your next step was to actually begin to work with wood. The structure atop the primary hull above the impulse deck, sometimes looks almost like a tube, and not flat at all. Then too, in other shots... I can't tell.
