Klingon Deathbird Class Cruiser

This is the "Klingon" from ERTL's reissue of the 3 ship set.
Rather than building her as a standard D-7, I chose to do her as a Deathbird instead.

As with the larger version, I cut off the wing assemblies and swapped them to create a "forward-swept" look to the main wing.
I then glued the main engine assemblies to the wingtips. The windows were drilled out with a sharp exacto blade.

Small bits of sprue were hollowed out and inserted fore and aft to form the torpedo tubes. Small squares of styrene were cut and glued on to form the more modern looking impulse deck.
The model was then given a base coat of black with details added in grey, blue, and red.
