I've had a chance this week to get a little work done on the K'tinga. Got all the seams filled and smoothed. Had to do a little rebuilding at the back corner due to an accident.






I am so out of practice airbrushing. I know it looks a little light, but I think this is pretty close to the few color pics I've seen.

Yes, I added that as well as a couple other little parts made of small wire. One "V" shaped bit in the same pic and one on the underside of the neck where it meets the "head".

And thanks for the compliment. If you get the edges of the body halves fitting right, that will line up and be a pretty easy fill.

Great progress on this. I'd like to see some overall shots showing the progress on the painting.

Default Re: Beeblebrox666 K'tinga

I may have mentioned this before, but it seems sometimes I like to do things the hard way. LOL
Because I didn't light block the insides of this model, I was stuck with thick layers of black paint obscuring the detail. And there are still places I missed. Plus I run the risk of scratching through while puting on and removing all the complex masks.

Sooooo...I'm puting this aside for a future battle damaged version (something very hard to screw up) and starting on another one. Yes, I am insane.

Anyway, here's a few pics so far. Better light blocking in the head part.



Rather than foil tape the whole inside, I will box in the areas requiring LEDs and tape them off.



Got smart this time and pinned some weak areas.



You may notice the bottom half of the head is already painted. I was missing a few parts so I scavanged from the other one that will be severely battle damaged one day. Scratchbuilt the little stairstep part on the edge as well.

I made a lot of unnecessary extra work for myself on that first one. I used to put lights in all my old styrene Trek models, but clear FG takes a whole different direction of planning to get good results. I think I've learned enough to make this one go together easier ( It has so far).

Looking good! I like how you added the styrene plate to the front of the pylons.

Thanks. It kinda helps get everything lined up in that area. Been working on the lighting. Should have some more pics soon.

Upper hull. I glued LEDs in aluminum tubes and covered the back ends with thick black "dimensional" paint.



Fiber optics inserted in the aluminum tubes. Some light leakage, but manageable.



Engine lights boxed and foiled.



All lights connected and powered up.



Fiber optics added, held in place with epoxy putty. Black goo added to all LED bottoms. Again, manageable light leakage.
