You wouldn't need anything beyond the new style Klingons for that.

Hell! If they wanted to fill in voids from the past, Enterprise B or C would have been nice perhaps :-\

Well, the decals for this thing are falling apart, and the colors didn't come out quite the way I wanted, not sure if I'm going to keep working on it or give up.  I could scan the sticker sheet and print my own decals to do the ones that completely fell apart and replace these ones that have several tares, but not sure I feel like doing it.

The decals that made it on don't look bad in the pictures but up close they have little tears and pieces missing:




And here's that Botany Bay I 3D printed next to my big Enterprise model:

Here's that Klingon D7 model all done.  This model was cursed as far as decals go, the ones that came with it fell apart so I had to print my own, and then when I was all done I noticed the windows on one side of the neck had disappeared.

Yeah it looks great. Last weekend I was putting the transfers on my first set of Blood Bowl teams. I had that terrible moment of panic when I picked one up and the transfer was missing, I managed to find it stuck to the back of my hand, rewet it and get it back on it. But it was a terrifying moment.

I normally scan the decal sheet so I can make more with Testors decal inkjet paper when stuff like this happens, but I forgot this time, luckily the kit came with a sheet of stickers so I had something to scan when the decals mostly fell apart.  Have to order a bottle of liquid decal film and use it every time, it's impossible to tell if the decals are full of micro cracks until you put them in water....


I'm pretty happy with the top color but the green ended up too green, my first coats were too blue, I was hoping a little of the blue would bleed through the thin green coats I put on next but it didn't.

Just watched "The Carbomite Maneuver".  The show is finally really taking off for me (though the last two were also pretty solid).

That was actually the first regular season episode filmed, after the 2nd pilot.  But it was so good they waited until November sweeps to air it.

Probably not for at least a year, they use these "exclusively on xxxxx streaming site" shows to get people to sign up.

And maybe never, CBS has been the worst network when it comes to making their shows available to purchase in either streaming or disc form.
