SNG Daily report 7-1-14

It was another long day of Enterprise D, Skydiver and the sixth finger mask.
The Enterprise D like all star Fleet ships is a handful but every step of the way it beckons you for more as it comes to life. They are such beautiful things and the fact that they represent a hopeful future for us one day makes them even more inviting.
I spent most of the day scratching out windows, cleaning up the seams and poor joins of the AMT model. Painting and repainting where the sub assembles went together and of course more light blocking with this pesky clear plastic model. But it’s starting to dial in now and we are getting closer to that clear coat and decals.
I still have many windows to go and some more light leaks to get but she’s close.
The Skydiver needed a lot of red putty repair to the surface. When the model was sent to me by the client it had been sanded to death with 60 grit and most of the details are gone. So I need the surface clean again to do the scribing and panel lines before I can place all those small parts on the surface.
The Sixth finger mask was poured a 3rd time and this time it’s so thick you could beat a man to death with it. Good. In and few days I can pull it from the mold and paint it.
Lastly Mary traced out our Martian so next week I can start building the armature and start fabricating the body masses.
More tomorrow.
