Cosmos Models 1/350 (36 Inch) Nebulon B Medical Frigate – Artist Paul Dilts WIP

I always wanted a good size kit of the medical frigate! And since Cosmos Models and JPG Productions started this kit rolling 2 years ago I was on board and paid in full up front for a kit. Very much worth the wait. I have been working on mine for 3 months off and on now. It has a few design flaws and fitment issues that when you start on it you will find them as well. The whole kit fits like a puzzle and only works good if you clean all the parts from flash and extra resin on the locking points that join the pieces together. A lot of dry fit testing will occur and I found the pipe he includes was a little short so I bought another longer one to accommodate my single point ILM style mount. This kit has been a labor of love, and I find myself at the 75% done mark in fitment! All my lighting is planned for the windows and all seven engine bells ( 10mm white flickering).

These pics I sent you are a test fit of most of the parts tacked with CA glue to see the fitment and overall integrity of my stand trying to keep the design straight/horizontal without any sagging in the rear, which was hard to achieve given the ILM style one arm mount. I have cut out at least 40 windows aside from the Med Bay and 3 windows next to it on the right. I will have blue LED’s for the most windows and cool white for med bay. Still quite a bit of work left, but the hard parts are done. Also I have changed a few things since these pic’s.

All in all this is a fabulous kit and honestly not for the average modeler. Hope you enjoy my work so far and if you have any questions? Please let me know! I know of only 2 other people that have this model, both on the RPF one built and the other started.

Thanks,

Paul Dilts
