My 3rd Place Klingon BOP
« on: March 25, 2010, 08:16:20 PM »
Here is my tiny Klingon Bird Of Prey that took 3rd place in last weeks regional contest put on by the Ft.Crook IPMS club I belong to. It won in the 1/72scale or smaller catagory since we had so many entries for Sci Fi. I used parts of German tanks to add details and I drilled out the forwar Phton torpedo tube as well. She didn't turn out to bad for only working on it for 5 days.

Warning the images are big and may take a while to upload

I am not a big fan of the whole green look, perfering the gull grey hulls. Yeha, I know what the wiki syas, I just don't like the green.

Apologies to everyone that might have seen one of my post in this thread. For some reason photobucket took down my links to the studio model of the Bird of Prey I used as a referance.

You missed a spot.
