      Well….when I found the green screen clip…I thought it would be pretty wild…you have a great Thanksgiving as well!

    Wow, love that color scheme. The green and brown was definitively a bit underwhelming for such a cool ship design, the choice for metallics and careful use of copper really give a menacing look that a Harlock ship should have. Bravo. And I know I say it all the time, but your small scale models are my favorites. Nobody else puts that much detail into little kits like this or the Excelsior.

    Just wish I had the extra cash a few years ago to order something like this while it was still available on your schedule. Not everybody has room for the big builds in their living room haha. That said, the DeBoers and Bird of Prey were a pure treat to watch built. Favorite will always be the Enterprise E resin kit though. What a knockout paint job on that, and still using pre-LED tech.

    Thumbs up

      For a bit of nostalgia purposes I went back to your pre-build update on the Big E. Didn’t recall the huge amount of LEDs involved, so I apologize for that discrepancy! Just remembered that you used to use CCFLs for stuff like nacelle lighting and that stuck out in my head. Hope you had a happy turkey day 🙂

        months of Studio time….and all those hand resisted LED’s..no LED tape in those days.

      Well thanks so much Steven! Indeed….the metallic colors were far more interesting, and far more sinister!
