Must be cloaked...

Well, my days of not taking you seriously are certainly coming to a middle.

I'm glad after 70+ views, someone had the sense to say "Hey, I can't see the pics". Well done Mr. Zombie_61. You've won the interwebs today.

Thank you. From what I can see it really replicates the scenes from the movies well, but I wouldn't mind seeing at least one shot with adequate lighting that shows off the entire diorama. The Klingon Bird of Prey is one of my favorite designs from the Star Trek universe, so I never get tired of seeing build-ups of this particular craft.

Well, my days of not taking you seriously are certainly coming to a middle.

Thanks everyone. I'm not quite done with the weathering, but I'll post some pics with better lighting later.

Huh, what are you talking about??? I can see it so the cloak must be off or it's malfunctioning.

Needs more grit.



If anyone's interested, the base consists of plywood, floral foam, gesso, lightweight spackle, paper mache' and just a hint of basil . Lots of airbrush, drybrush, washes and generous lashings of hot screwdriver. (for the Fawlty Towers fans, LOL).
