Modeling Project - UES KONGO

This is the Polar Lights 1:1000 Constitution class kit. I had originally intended to paint her in Motion Picture era colours, but my test was a disaster and I shot her with Testors gloss silver instead. The bussard collectors are Tamiya clear orange with a hint of clear red mized in. Most of the dark gray decals are Tamiya metallic gray.

Decal-wise, the windows (which I admittedly went a bit crazy with on the lower saucer) are from the kit, as are several of the greeblie detail decals.

The energized warp coils, is from the JTGraphics kitbashers set, and the impulse engine is a combo of one of his decals and one from the kit. The gangway hatches also came from his sheet, as did the subspace antennae (triangles on the bottom saucer) and the pylon vents.

JDecals provided the custom pennants, registry numbers, and name, as well as the United Earth Interstellar Confederation 'meatball' logo just aft of the bridge dome.

Now, just to be a jerk... I didn't use a single drop of decal set... most all of the decals, and most especially JDecals' custom ones, went down utterly smooth as silk.

She still needs two more shots of clear coat and then she'll be done.

Enjoy the pics...
