iModeler at the Movies. Klingon Bird of Prey
I know it may be too early to post, but since this was a Christmas present for my sister and is leaving today I had to get some shots.
The kit is AMT’s 1/350 Klingon BoP made up as the HMS Bounty from Star Trek IV, The Voyage Home. I myself am more partial to Star Wars (although I do enjoy both) this is probably my favorite ship from Trek. With Leonard Nimoy indicating what he wanted it to look like merely with a gesture of his arms ILM took it from there and really knocked one out of the park! Even adding the three position articulating wings which makes it sit rather nicely when parked. To me the Bird of Prey is right there with the Imperial Shuttle from Return of the Jedi for some of ILM’s nicest work.
I even got a nice shot of a snowflake despite my freezing fingers!
