Lots of photos to update. Just not enough time. I cooked one of the ICs on the board. Sent it back to maker for fix.

Masking set just doesn’t have enough adhesive bite. The damn airbrush literally blows the friskets off. I need to sand down the neck and start over.

Also dropped an engine nacelle and banged it up. This is after busting the clear grill out to fix some electronics, then drilling holes in the opposite side to use sticks to glue it back in (it needed to be pressed against a slot from the inside), then filling the holes, sanding, repainting, dropping, filling sanding, repainting.

One thing I can say. This thing is solid as a rock using the correct glues plus 3M structural adhesive. The last one was quite fragile. Not this one.

She going to be battle damage from Khan? Looks like phaser scoring on the hull
