    I wasn’t going to post this, but this project has sat so long I figure it deserves its place in my history. This is Marc Robitalle’s Klingon K’tinga model. It’s one of the first models I found when I started this hobby. I printed and cut this out a long time ago, so when I finally decided to assemble it I realized it wasn’t really going to work. Like the rest of you, the way I build these has changed over time so starting with my “old” style wasn’t good. And, it was printed on my old printer, which was out of alignment, at the wrong size to be in scale with my Rawen models (it’s much too big). I was just going to trash it, but decided to hack away and use it as a practice model that could be destroyed later in a photo shoot. As such, I didn’t take a lot of pics. I didn’t even use all the pieces. And, I’m not going to do a written build breakdown. I’ll just let the pics tell the story and maybe someone can get a chuckle out of it.

    First up, the Head, Neck and Bridge

    Excellent job on a very difficult model to approach, with all the compound curves. :)
