Default USS Defiant NX-74205 1/420

I decided to upgrade an AMT Defiant after realizing I cant afford a build from REL I am modifying the deflector housing to be more accurate and also modifying the thickness of the hull surrounding the Bussards. Here are some shots....

IMHO the model really needed the changes...especially the lengthened Deflector Housing. I'll keep posting

Got a lot of painting done today and yesterday...... Im a little unhappy with the darker blue color.... its a little too blue.Got a good shot of the look of the new deflector housing...IMHO it looks a lot more like the actual studio model.

I can't remember if I chimed in on this over at SSM but I think the blue shades rock. Also, did you lightly mist some white on the blue grilles on the dish? Sure looks spiffin!!

I have just started modifying the same kit. I would have loved REL's model but unfortunately not on the horizon for me. I have gone more radical and have cut the deflector and nacelles from the main body for a start. I am going to use all the studio pics and RELS photos and try and accurize the model to the best of my ability.

The last I heard...ROUND 2 was planning on re-releasing it sometime this
year. I don't know if they've modified the original molds though.
