Fast Fwd.. parts assembled and painted waiting for my decal solution to come but that's OK it will give the gloss white a few days to dry up nicely. Quick shot of the decals im using and the painted sub assembly's.

All painted,including the bottom of the saucer (seen where a lot of people complaining that they wish they had done that before they placed the decals so i made note of that on mine)... installed the clear pieces the white is still a bit tacky should be able to start the decaling tomorrow.

The biggest thing about this model is knowing when to stop it real easy to mess up already applied decals if you try to push it to far. Top part of the saucer ,starboard top side of the main ship and top of one of the nacelles. And that's all for tonight.

The decaling carries on had a little bit of a problem with the decal on the nacelle bottom not really sure how it fit i believe its right but not positive. looks OK anyway.

Nice model! But it's always bugged me that the gridlines are so pronounced particularly on a model of this scale.

Still... :thumbsup:

Those kit decals look pretty nice. Not as dark as they seemed on some other builds I've seen. Are you satisfied with how they look overall or have you thought at all about muting the aztec pattern by overspraying it with a thinned down mix of the basecoat? It may be too late to do that at this point though without obscuring areas you wouldn't want to overspray such as the warp grills, the black half round in front of the hangar doors, etc.
