Showcase / Klingon Bird of Prey 1/2500

So it isn't technically a mecha but I figure it's close enough.

A favorite of mine since child hood. Quick little build, but it gave me some problems. AMT models are an entirely different beast compared to the precision of Bandi kits. But over all I'm rather happy with this guy. 

Feedback appreciated.

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

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.

Nice clean work as always. I like the shade of blue, very vibrant.

I've run into similar problems. I've found that Isopropyl Alcohol is far to good at it's job as a thinner. It'll strip just about anything. What are you using for panel lining?
I paint with acrylics top coat it with future floor wax then panel line with enamels and clean up with enamel thinners. Hope that helps.

Interesting looking froward to seeing this one finished.

Occasionally my hands will shake as well. The beast advice I can offer is to brace your hand. I'll try to explain. If I'm holding the piece I'm painting/applying decals/masking to I brace my other hand against it, by resting the heel of my hand against it. Alternatively you could rest both elbows on the table and steady one hand with the other. I really hope that makes sense.
