On the Bench 164a: JR Aiello’s Klingon ship

TOS Klingon battlecruiser. An old AMT/ERTL kit. Like many of my models, it was partly assembled and then put away for years. Recently I unearthed it and worked on finalizing it. No special techniques or tools.

The boom had a tendency to point downward more than it should. I think this is from plastic warpage when the kits were stored in the garage.

A little pressure and heating at the joint helped correct it. It was painted with grey primer, after filling the one bad seam on the left warp engine with putty. Sanded and reprimed, it now waits for final painting and decaling. The impulse deck is completely finished, but it’s not shown here.
