Default USS Antares - Remastered from "Charlie X"

Another longer bench shot. I tried overspraying a too fresh layer of Duplicolor lacquer so the enamel orange peeled on me.
Yikes! I quickly wiped off the offending Japanese Navy Imperial Grey enamel.
That's the color the 1/350 Enterprise kit instructions said to paint the hull of the big Polar Lights Enterprise.
Anyway, I then did some light spit sanding before re-priming.
So this image is basically a filler until I finish the hull basecoats; although, you do get to see my immaculate workbench!

This one reminds me of a tricorder for some reason:

She's a tad darker now after another go round with the primer.
Got to get the deflector dish spike sorted out next.
I may just make a new dish to stand proud a teenie bit from the dish as molded.
Maybe paint it light fluorescent blue underneath the dish, like a blue glow...
Maybe not.

So did some work on the deflector dish.
After combing thru my greeblie stashes I came up empty so resolved to make the dish from scratch using .040 styrene sheet and music wire...

The punch, the pinvise, and the router bit used to make the deflector dish shown.
I also used a sanding stick:

After hollowing out the lightly punched disc I punched it out from some .040 thick sheet using a punch tool and a hammer.
Before that I drilled the center hole using a pinvise:

After punching and hollowing out some .040 styreene using a round router bit in my handheld battery powered "dremel" tool I glued the blank to a short piece of music wire using Plastic Surgery CA glue:

The backside was shaped with a diamond file and sanding stick to get the right curvature:

Deflector dish recess on lower hull.
White will be over painted with transparent blue acrylic:

Need to lightly sand with 400 grit or lighter:

I've found some leftover decal material with panels from what I think was an Absolute Models set of aztec decals for the 1/2500 scale Enterprise D kit
so plenty of small light grey panels to mix and match.
They should work well over the flat gull grey hull.
Of course being decals I'll need to gloss coat the hull first:
