I built this for a guy I worked with a couple years ago. It's rather large and takes some time to build. I had to paint the outside 4 times 'til it looked good to me.

Thank you peteski & SfanGoch.

I did build it so the top half of the ship is removable. It shows as the next to last pic so a lot is still hidden by the top ring.

The outside was painted with Dupli-Color silver out of the rattle can (better coverage/wider pattern). No clear-coat. There are various shades of Dupli-Color silvers and greys on the interior along with my first use of water base acrylic paints on some of the parts. Inner/bottom is Dupli-Color black primer.

The guy I built it for received it as a Christmas present from a co-worker. He didn't get the lighting kit.

It is a well designed and executed kit.

Great job!  I remember my dad watching that show when I was little.

I remember watching it when I was younger. May have had something to do with Angela Cartwright :D


Thanks for the kind words everyone.

Great looking model. I never noticed before how this ship loosely resembled the one used for The Invaders.

Guess I was too preoccupied looking at Marta Kristen. The mom was pretty hot too...if you could get past the Lassie association. ;)

I'll check out a show or two. I doubt that it will be the same :lol:

Yep Ace, Marta sure was pretty. "Penny" was closer to my age.

June was a good looking lady.

I watch the reruns on MeTV and yes, all the ladies are hot!  And speaking of the Invaders, I was channel surfing over the weekend (and nigth) and  the premiere episode was being shown on MeTV. Looks like they will be showing the series.
