  1. Sakura said "Moist" That is my wife's second most hated word!!
  2. Finished the interior and exterior paint and decals. Next step is chipping the paint, oils and powders. I also have to sand the canopy again with the 2500 grit and paint with Pledge Multi Surface Polish. For the folks in the States think the old scale modellers trick using Future Floor Polish to make plastics and resin clear again after sanding.
  3. I have been working on the interior. Decided to go outside of my normal colour pallet. These are not finished pieces so touch ups and other weathering is on the way. I also took a photo of the design on one of the tails.
  4. This was going to be posted tomorrow but I managed the time to spray and paint today. Top base coat and masking done. That is a car hair.
  5. It is an interesting design and I have been looking at the Beta design. My only complaint about most of his stuff is that everything is a dead end. Most ship designs have only one entrance or exit. Limits play. There are some options to add other doors/hatches but not that many. Quick update. The bottom half is pretty much done. Still some small touch ups but pretty much done on the basic paint.
  6. It is a clip system since the interior and exterior has many options that can be used. In this case I will be using the clips and gluing them in place. The modular aspect is nice but I am not sure how the paint job will survive. Of you google 2nd dynasty starship 3 Kickstarter all of the options are shown.
  7. I am always impressed with your use of bright vibrant colours. Whenever I try to use them on a miniature it always comes off tacky. Your efforts always seem to flow.
  8. Base coat and masking done. It will need touch ups and some bits painting.
  9. Sorry folks. Spent yesterday working. We have some travellers that are encamped just outside of where my daughter has her horse and we had to get ready for this storm. Had to move anything not nailed down from the horse and lock down all of the stuff in the garden. The base is the new primus 32mm size. I picked the figure since the scale is relatively common even for folks who do not play. I am sure one would work. Problem is availability. Once out of the US your shopping options for reaper minis drops to almost nil. I did not include these in the first post. Hope that helps.
  10. Test painted the nacelles and engine bells. White auto primer over grey auto primer. Masked then acrylic red painted on top. I was testing the model masking tape as much as I was testing the paint pallet and I am pretty happy with the results. I will have to pick up a pot of white that more closely matches the primer base as my touch up colours are off. Once the whole exterior is completed it will received a treatment for chipped paint followed by several treatments of oils and powders. Capitan Obvious for scale.
  11. No not at all. But Capitan Obvious is alive and well. He says Haha My finger Points!!!!
  12. More examples. Some for scale. Some of the faceting that I will need to sand out.
  13. I picked up a Shuttle Alpha from Proteus 3D Modelling. I never bit the bullet when the kickstarter ran becasue I was not looking at purchasing a 3d printer. I am very happy with the quality of the print, the design of the ship and the pricepoint. Like all 3D prints I will have to do some sanding/smoothing to remove layers. At this point I am planning on painting the ship like one of Peter Ellison's spaceship paintings from the 70's. I will post better photos while I am working on it. Hope you like.
