Randy Asplund Star Trek Klingon Bird Of Prey Box Cover

    This painting was my first Star Trek model kit cover. I had done some other Trek work in 1993 for Task Force Games. This was the original cover for AMT/ERTL's model. As usual with AMT/ERTL, this one also has a story. The art director had me supply sketches and he selected this wings up version. When the kit came out, I looked into one of my sample boxes and read the instructions, only to find that of the three wing positions the ship uses, they only had the energy to bother making parts to do wings down and wings horizontal. Not up! They even made a joke about it in the instruction sheet.
 
Well, other than that, it is actually a reasonable kit. I would recommend it.
Below is a picture of the color sketch I made for this one.
