Quick and Dirty Klingon D-4 Build
I picked up a Polar Lights D-7 kit or £2 a while back. I could never endure the tedium of just building it, so I thought I would convert it to the Eaves D-4. Turns out that it would have been easier to start from scratch, but whatever. All the baby blue bits are kit parts, the rest is scratch.
I love this ship , but for the fine details there wasn't consensus between the fx model and the Eaves drawings. I think the whole attraction of building concept stuff is filling in the gaps on an iconic design. My model is by no means accurate, especially the nacelles.
I almost didn't primer it, I sort of like the color scheme.
