1/1000 Amelia Earhart TOS Transport

Hi Gang:

I wanted to share my WF project with you. I've posted most of these images on my FB page and I thought it was time I got off my butt and posted them here.

With everybody creating starship uniform patches, I thought I would jump on the patch band wagon. Here is my design for the Earhart. The stylized wings are inspired by the vintage Lockheed logo. I'm thinking of having a tee shirt made using the engineering version. I'm a terrible leader and don't have enough folds in my brain to be a scientist but I can build things! :D

EDIT: I revised the command version a bit by adding more black to better match the other designs.

Nifty idea.

Although I don't like most TOS designs, I gotta admit that the fuel tug looks purty neat.

What the fuck! Fuckity fuck fuck fuck! How did this happen? I'm pretty sure that crack was not there when I painted the damn thing!

I don't have time to replace the cracked part. I think I will try to minimize the visible damage by adding more red to the collector. If that doesn't work I may have to putty and paint the whole thing solid red.

That sucks ass dude. Was it a reaction to glue or paint?

Yeah. Major suckage. You work hard for months to create the best model you can and something like this happens.

The caps were wrapped with parafilm for weeks to protect the orange color. I think the damage happened while they were covered. It's only one nacelle and the crack is located on the lower inside so it will be difficult to see. I may replace the part in the future but I don't think I will be messing with it before WF.

I think you'd be best off painting it opaque red and call it a day for WF. Better that than to have the crack show during judging.

Just add a blurb on the entry sheet "port nacelle is cracked due to Klingons using improper docking procedure and I chose to model this unique circumstance" ;)
I swear, I had something for this

Dang dude. :shock: Paint it opaque for now, like Mark suggested and replace the part for another show. Not much time left for WF.

Huh huh... y'all said crack... huh huh :lol:

Laid down the first coat of Future today. I'll spray the underside tonight and start on decals in a couple of days.
