1:2500 Ambassador Class Ship-Part 2


Not sure I like the decals for this set very much.  Real fiddle to get them lined up and few places where the printed windows don’t seem to match the engraved windows on the model.  Would probably have been better if I had filled them all in prior to starting.

But here is the progress.

First the underside of the saucer section.

And this was the first side completed.

Hopefully holding it will give you an idea of the size.

And this was the secondary hull after completing the second side, all bar the nacelle (only because I needed something to hold it by while the other decals were still wet).

Getting the large transfers which wrap around the secondary hull to align was a royal pain.  It’s not 100% even now but they are so thin they were starting to tear as I had to try and move them so many times.  Will have to do.

And the sharp eyed will have spotted the ship name, which has now been applied to the primary hull.
