Title: Klingon Bird of prey
Post by: Othikent on May 27, 2018, 08:48:38 AM
So it's been awhile since I posted anything of note here. I haven't been slacking I've just been more focused on painting miniatures than model kits. But I recently picked up a few Star Trek kits I had once had as a kid, and decided to try my hand at them now that I have some skill. Now this isn't a giant robot but I figure it's close enough to a mecha to count.

It's a small kit and it's apparent that Bandi kits have spoiled me.

It went together well enough.

But there are some problems with the kit. Mainly these huge holes through the kit.

so I decided I needed to modify the kit a bit. Added a bit ribbed styrene to cover the holes in the front.

Now just I just need to figure out how I'm going to close up the holes in the back.

Alright so I found a solution, a tried and true one. Adding some random bits!
