the final frontier! These are the voyages of the large ship Extrasize....
It's seven year mission: to keep television ratings high, to provide new
eye candy and more technobabble. To boldly hold more conventions than anyone
has held before!"
A lot of people
have built this ERTL model over the years with varying results. I built
this model of the Enterprise "D" for a customer in England. It had
lighting incorporated into it for the engines and cabin lights. There are
about two dozen tiny lights in the model. The biggest jobs (and most boring)
were cutting out the hundreds of windows and painting the "aztek" panelling.
There are eight
pictures on this page. Please be patient while they all load up. It's worth
this model has been on display, I have received numerous emails asking
which colours I used to paint the model, so for those of you interested,
here they are:
light blue mixed with a touch of Tamiya
Light Grey mixed witha bit of the Tamiya
is to mix them so the blue still looks more blue than the grey does, but
to just "bring the colours a little closer together" so they don't look
quite so obviously different.)
were painted with na mixture of Tamiya Light
Buff and a touch of Tamiya
Flat Yellow. The phaser banks are Tamiya
dark grey. The decals were applied using
decal settinfg solution and then when dry, the whole model was lightly
sprayed with "Testor's Dulcote"
is lifghtly weathered with chalk dust.
