Now, I've done a ton of impulse drives and lit them with a variety of diffusion film, glass beads, clear styrene and acrylic, overlapped with photoetch, etc. It does the job but with a single piece of slide film - that includes the diffusion, color gradient and any grill work, it's a no-brainer. The film blacks are completely opaque.
Ok, I am sold on it, but how do you print on the film?

Sorry I was a bit unclear on this my main concern right now is the material of the resin printer would you recommend to prime the parts first.

I use an online service that allows me to upload my high resolution jpegs to be printed on 35mm slide film: http://www.exslides.com/Default.htm

I will prime everything before painting as a general rule. Depending on the model, I may build subassemblies and prime that as a group. Eventually, everything becomes one unit and I paint it as such.

Awesome work! You are exceptionally meticulous, very organize and obviously having a blast too building this model. I can feel the adrenalin rush

Thanks Nostromo! It was a fairly quick build, all things considered.

Here's a few images of her alongside the Endurance (both 1/350 scale). Reliant is 30" long, the Endurance is 47.5".

Dang, done already! It's almost like immediate satisfaction. She looks real good Admiral, and hanging nice and tight in formation with the Endurance.
