Been a month, thought I'd bump this and see if there's any news to report.

Still sanding away. I've primed all the existing parts (though the 3D work was finished a while ago, there are still a few parts to be printed out) and am sanding them smooth up to 320. After this process is complete, for all parts not including the blockhouse, I'll strip away the remaining primer, give the parts a quick once-over with a 600-grit sponge, then re-prime them and look for any spots that need additional work. At that point, those pieces will be ready for molding.

After all the blockhouse parts are sanded up to 320, then stripped of primer, I'll assemble it, fitting it to the saucer at the same time. Once that's done, I can do the final sanding/priming/cleanup.

Overall, I'm very happy with how the parts have come out after their 320-sanding. I keep meaning to post some pics of the smoothed-out pieces....I'll make it a point to do so this week. The most impressive piece is the torpedo launcher as it's instantly recognizable. It took maybe 15-20 hours of work to get it where it is. Even at 16 micron resolution the stair-stepping was pronounced...well, compared to a truly smooth surface. The stepping is barely visible on the white, slightly translucent printing material...but it becomes instantly visible upon priming. And since hardly any material is actually removed, the sanding process has to be slow and careful.

So, yep, progress is being made....

Some pics...

All the primer hasn't been removed so there's a bit of grunge remaining and 2 of the pieces haven't had the excess putty sanded off yet.

Will modifying the nacelles be up to the modeler, or are you working on those parts as well? Not talking about the obvious engine mounts/junctions for the nacelle struts. The nacelle's flux chillers i.e., the copper thumb nail grill sections are further aft on the Avenger class than that of a Constitution refit's nacelles.

You're doing so much as is, just wondering? And it doesn't matter either way, I'm still buying one.

Thank you!

No, I have no plans to do any mods for the nacelles. But I'll be watching after the kit is released to see what the builders say...there may be changes based on that.

I know the specifics alterations required for the nacelles. Actually working on masters for Federation Models in 1/537 scale. There are two nacelle versions depending on which Miranda/Avenger variant you want to attach them to.
