Finishing the Enterprise-A

After the Excelsior, the Enterprise-A was much easier. Smaller model and less decals.

 

There were still some tricky parts, specifically the nacelles again, but having a smaller model actually made them easier to get applied and aligned without any tears.

 

The finished ship, my only regret is the mess I made of the black around the Bussard collectors (which the decals didn’t cover at all). I bought a second kit to make eventually, I think when I do that I’ll not worry about painting that part or I’ll try taping it.

 

And here’s the trio of Enterprises, I love seeing the scale differences.

    You’re making me all kinds of jealous now. I need to break out the paints so that I can have some minis to brag about.

      I’ve been tempted to try those myself, but I’m afraid my miserable art skills would become a problem there. Fortunately with these ships it’s mostly decals and very little painting.
