Here is an almost completed Enterprise. I am using a strip of paper to mask off the deflector grid. As you can see there are some of the bussards (call what they really are Steve) that were painted a stop light red acrylic paint. I masked off the clear parts with Ambroid EZ Mask.
Is the production version completely finished. I painted it with FS35414 Blue from Testors Modelmaster. As you can see, the bussards are highly 3D.
As you can see, the bussards are painted but no worries, they are masked with Ambroid Liquid Mask including the lower and uppeer dome.
Here are the rows of the Enterprise…
