Default SS Botany Bay

This is the Botany Bay, a DY-100 class sleeper ship, built from the 1/350 scale Fantastic Plastic resin kit.
The model was mastered by our very own REL.
This is the first of two ships I'm building from this kit.
The model shown here will remain with me as part of my own collection.
The second one is still in progress and needs to be weathered before shipment to my client.
Yes, you heard right, my clent! You see, this is my first commission build...

The client is a big TOS Star Trek fan and wanted the model to resemble the original filming miniature as closely as possible based on the available photos he provided me of the original studio model. I built the first kit for myself as a "guinea pig" of sorts to try out and perfect various weathering techniques before moving on to the cleint's build.
The model will be placed inside an acrylic display case beside his Master Replicas TOS Enterprise.
Interestingly, this client also has the same model done in the "remastered" weathering style for him by RL Bleecker.
Knowing my work would be compared to Mr Bleecker's was a bit intimidating, but, the client likes what I did with my build so I'm confident he will be pleased with his ship when I'm done.

Just a few more pics before I move on to the second BB.
The client asked for some views from above so here goes.
I also included one pic of the underside of the nuclear engine pod...

Those with a keen eye might notice the model is mounted to a different stand in these shots.
The original base was made per specific measurements provided by the client to fit inside a display case alongside his MR Enterprise.
As such his ship will be in a static pose not subject to rotation on it's support rod.
In the case of my ship it will be on a shelf and able to rotate so I wanted something larger as the model tends to tip over when oriented so the long axis of the ship is projecting over the narrowest portion of the stand.
I found a nice sized square wooden base at Michael's which solved the stability problem.

Looks fantastic!!

Q= Are you going to add padding around the antennae? They could be damaged due to vibrations during shipping. I also recommend not shipping it on its stand, that could do damage as well. Just my 2. I've done a lot of shipping of this type of model. You know, the kind of model that you worked countless hours on and don't want the shippers to destroy?

The stern section is braced with foam blocks top and bottom and the model is wrapped inside a plastic bag so no foam directly contacts the model. The wooden box is being shipped inside a larger cardboard box filled with air bladders, bubble wrap, and styrofoam peanuts. The "solar" panels are very sturdy and are glued into the resin struts with JB Weld. I do not think there will be much vibration with all the padding between the model and box and between the box and the outer box. It's only going from the Bay Area to So Cal after all.

An excellent job with the weathering. Looks like what I was trying on mine with the pics on Phil Broad's site.

Good news! The client received the package I sent out last Saturday and he was very pleased with it. No damage and he loved the weathering and finish. His son even said he liked it better than the one RL Bleeker made for his father from the same kit of the remastered Botany Bay. High praise indeed!
