'He's intelligent, but inexperienced. His pattern indicates two dimensional thinking.' 'Full stop. Z minus 10,000 metres....' Best Star Trek movie IMHO, and a really good film full stop. Mainly an aircraft modeller, I have long wanted a model of the refit Enterprise after my abortive attempt with an AMT model 30 years ago, and the Polar Lights 1/1000 kit was great fun. Finished OOB, I tried a few paints before I got to the look in my minds eye...specifically Xtracrylix light grey FS 36495. I couldn't resist the battle damage decals...I think I've got them right for the ship at this point in the film! Highly recommended. Pics taken against an off monitor for an attempt at 'space!
Kit Manufacturer: Polar Lights Scale: 1/1000 Paints Used: Tamiya LP/Vallejo Paragraphix Photo Etch sets Polar Lights Aztec decals sheet for Reliant Hi guys, this is the final reveal of my Wrath of Khan diorama, I wanted to try and mimic the blue and pink colours that were present in the movie when the Enterprise entered the Mutara Nebula. I used some plastic right angle strip to create a frame and glued some 12v neon LED strip lights to the inside of the frames. The Enterprise and Reliant are powered by a pp3 9v battery under each base. I made up a Perspex shelf to hold the models and fixed a jack plug under the frame to power the strip lighting from a 12v wall socket power supply. The camera does not really give a true representation of how the colours look, but in person, I am very pleased with the results. You could say it's my first wall mounted diorama. These are snap together kits and overall, well-engineered. I did have to cut off some fixing pegs to add the lighting and used glue in the final assembly. I can't say I used much of the photo etch sets as I found the brass was way too thick for the scale of these kits. I like adding decals, but avoid these kits if that's not your thing as there are loads of them to cut out and fit. I hope you all enjoy the pictures. "Live long and prosper!"
