Cool And so it begins. Another new project! For this years project I am starting 1, possible 2 Polar Light NX-01 Enterprise kits. I have 9 new pics on my site. At this point I haven't decided how these kits are to be mounted, but they will have the same careful detailing as I did with the PL refit Enterprise. So far the kit seems to be very easy to assemble although there is a seating problem with one of the pylons for the engines. If anyone else has encountered this problem please let me know how you fixed it. It could be I just got a badly molded part. Anyway, this kit will be lighted so I've begun to opaque the entire ship to prevent light leaks. After which I will apply a base coat of Flat White so I can begin the Aztecing paint job with some colors I am not fond of working with, namely Steel and Aluminum. there's a lot to do on this kit, I love the heavier plastic that Polar Lights uses for these models. I'll have more pics in the next update. See you then!

Cool In this update I've added the base coat to the hull and started spraying the steel color. I then Dulcoted that color so it would protect the steel color from the Aztec-ing process. Their are no real clear photos that I have of the exact pattern of the Aztec job. The one included with the building instructions is okay for reference, but why they printed reflections of light on this I don't understand. The box art is a reference pic, but it doesn't have the finer deteails that I would like to put into this build. The Aztec-ing is going to take quite a while to do, so bear with me on this. It may take several weeks just to get the top part of the saucer section done. See you next update!
