I was taking pics of my Starline minis for the painting thread, thought I'd snap a few of my Shapeways stuff too. I'll add my 1/7000 fleets at some point over the next few weeks as well. I use the big fellow as a C7 and the smaller pair as D5s.

Nicely done. I have a few of these sitting in the box waiting to be painted.

Did you run into any issues painting the somewhat stepped surface that isn't flat all the time?

I don't think they're 1/4000 though, since the D7 is a LOT larger than the ADB version at 1/3788.

Thanks guys.

Didn't have any bother painting the surface (other than running out of places to hold it Smile), as long as your paint isn't too thick it'll get into all the nooks and crannies easily enough. Certainly no more difficulties than painting a Panzer III or similar.

I'm not so sure that they're 1/4000 either, I think the designer was rounding up. They're correct for 1/3788 if you go with the 228m length I've commonly seen quoted for the D7 and looks spot on side-by-side with a Constitution class when compared to images over at the Starfleet Museum http://www.starfleet-museum.org/constitution-d7.jpg (perhaps the SFU variety goes with the ~200m length some sources quote ?).

Quick shot of a 1/7000 D7, consider it a placeholder until I can get some half-decent fleet shots done. Bit of a pain trying to get good shots of such tiny models Smile

And one of the Feds for balance. Not a great picture, but good enough to make out the details.
