Can't wait to see finish... until then these pics will satisfy
I pick at it daily. That keeps me from getting into a rush and doing too much too fast and not paying attention to details.
These are two of the interior spaces in the Enterprise. On the left is the bridge lounge and on the right is the Arboretum.
There have been people who have detailed these spaces to some really crazy levels of detail. I was tempted to do the same. However, the plastic windows these will be behind aren't exactly what you would call perfect optics. They're wavy and won't do much more than allow distorted shapes to be seen.
So with that thought in mind, I've opted to be very simple with both. Spots of bright color and suggested shapes more than super details are the key here.

The engineering hull is just sitting here on my desk after its initial coat of the pearl coat. The first coat was done with each piece separately. The second will be done with the hull stood up on where the deflector will be attached.
I do that to minimize differences in the paint layers between each part. It's very easy to not realize you have different paint thicknesses until you go to put things together.
