    AMT 1/1000 USS Excelsior done.

    IMG_20211025_001452.jpg.f892e0a1f6b1a64537bb72232a915d85.jpg

    Finished with GCal Aztec Decals meant for the Enterprise B, and a hodgepodge of parts from both NCC2000 and NX2000 versions, so not screen accurate by any means.

    The kit was hard for me to build, lots of gaping seams, lots of filling and sanding.  I built this model entirely without magnification so there are a lot of errors, please do not zoom in, lol!

    Glad it's finished, don't think I would ever build another one, hahahahaha!

    I zoomed and I REGERET NOTHING!! Outstanding looking Excel!

  2. And onto my Academy 1/72 F-4J! While awaiting some PE for the 'pit I'm doing the cans first. I thought I might get some resin replacements, but they cost too much and would take too long to arrive, so I'll be doing a little 'home improvement.'

    First is the detail of the burners which, while also being stuck pretty deep into the tunnel, are pretty simplistic.

    But I have the parts for the F-14A variant that I'm not using.

    So a little work has been done, first drilling a hole through the right and sitting it atop the one on the left.

    Then I broke into the metal stash and cut some rods to form rings for the burners.

    Now to glue that together and duplicate it!

  3. Nose gear well is done, painted up and weathered with a dark panel line wash.

    And mated to the cockpit tub before the nose sides were closed around it.

    I have some seamless intakes on the way and I'll need to order some seats for the D variant. But, modeling on!

  4. Wherever you sit on the divide, commentators have been the true death of actual news. 

    I would be happy if the 24 hour news cycle died as quickly as it had formed.

    All this talk about news media and cool names for tv reminded me that there was a news anchor with the name Wolf Blitzer. That dude may be famous for what he does, but missed his calling to be an NFL quarterback or action movie star.

    Guy has an awesome name!
