Pictures of my completed Atomic City studio scale Klingon D7. After posting the construction pictures I thought I was close to completion however I wasn’t expecting the issues I had with the kit decals. They were well printed but thick, […]

Studio Scale Klingon D7.

by Robert Aspinall on August 8, 2017 in Sci-fi -- 11 Comments

I’ve been working on Tamiya’s 32nd scale Zero for a few months now. Generally I enjoyed the build but didn’t appreciate the added complication of the working features. I also struggled with getting the front of the fuselage to line […]
