Hurray! I finished my Klingon D7. I've posted initial pics on my site:

http://home.earthlink.net/~sgc6000/sf.htm

As you can see, I've done this with the same philosophy as my Enterprise; namely, updating the look to better fit in with the modern shows. This ship is grungy and battle worn, and I created some additional markings to give it more pizazz. I call it the "FooFoo K'boom" (thanks Trek Ace for giving me the idea!:thumbsup: ). Eventually, I'll put more pics up.

I like i. A lot. Great idea. Really great idea. And nice job on the shuttlebay, too. How'd you do the panelling on the "wings."

Brad.
I printed the pattern, which I had made on my computer, onto full sheet clear label stock. I scored around the pattern, being careful not to cut all the way through the label stock. Then I sprayed on the color, lifted off the cut panels, and affixed them to the model (which had been sprayed with the base coats already).

I created the template in Corel Draw. There were a few panels I had to trim "on the fly" to get them to fit properly. I need to make some minor adjustments to the template , but once they're done, I'd be glad to e-mail JPEG files to anyone who wants them.

I'm glad everyone likes the D7! I hope PL comes out with a 1/1000 K'tinga some day. If not, I'll have to modify the D7 kit.

I look at that kit and I think: "Star Trek:phase II" I would love to see it along side with a Phase II E. I really like seeing someone's artistic license coming through on ships we've all seen. Really, really nice kit.

I personally like BOTH your ENTERPRISE and D7. I was almost inspired to do the same with my 22" USS Constellation.....but gave up as reproducing your aztec pattern would have taken me to the 23rd century with Microsoft "PAINT".

I actually gave it a day or two before giving up on that idea. Your graphic talent is obvious. Very creative. Can't wait to see what you do on the Refit.....Bob

In reading your description about the decals, you mention them getting smudged on the first try. I've been told that it's been a good idea to spary the decals with a very thin clear overcoat before putting them on the model. This is supposed to protect them from smudging. I've never done my own decals like that before so I haven't had a chance to try it. I'd love to try it on my AMT 1/537 TOS Enterprise. :)
