I don't usually post works in progress, but things are a little slow right now, so I figured why not.

First is SSM's kit of the D-11 One Wing. It's a pretty simple kit, so I'm focusing on a really great finish, making sure every little dimple and scratch is filled. I also re-scribed the panel lines as they were really faint. She's classified as a Destroyer, but actually has more internal volume than the D-7!

Next up is a Jackill design; a Letchu class destroyer. It's the first kitbash I ever started, but I got stuck and had set it aside for almost two years! As a work in progress, I brought it to the Lizard Lounge at Wonderfest two years ago. The symmetry of the two pylons had me stymied, but I finally just ground one side off, and build it back up with Aves. The second try has me satisfied.

This is where she stands right now, with sub-assemblies just set together. Lots of Aves in this one:

Very kewel, Eric! I especially like the Q-4. That'll be an interesting, original kit for your collection! Hope you'll bring it to WF '10!

Both ships are looking clean and sharp so far. I thought the Klingon imperial fleet abandoned the D-11 design, though. They found it could only go in circles! :tongue:
