Officially we are Star Trek Sirius. A new series spin off. http://www.makestarshipsnotwar.com
Here is the latest news. Keep in mind the clip at the beginning is a rough cut unfinished glimpse but I though I’d finally give you a little tease.
Enjoy. More to come,
Another 8 hour day and I got the engineering hull done top and bottom. Lower saucer section done too.
Tomorrow I’ll do the pylons and nacelles and that just about covers the Aztecs. That will make three days as compared to the 7 it took to put on the decal Aztecs. There will be Video tomorrow, which really shows better, the paint job that these pictures seem to wash out.
Well Lou Dalmaso has converted me into an Aztek Dummy! These masks are great! More control, faster and easier once you get the hang of it than decals. Plus you can match the colors exactly to pictures of the real model.
A couple of masks that were removed leaped back onto the saucer you can see. Lots of static but they aren’t part of the paint job just so you know.
There will be video tomorrow that shows how I did it. I made some stencils for the other colors and shapes based on the photos of the real model and sprayed through them before and after I removed the masks.
