Spaceships

Recommended Posts

So I got a cheap bag of spaceship toys to use for Starfinder ship combats. They'll work unbased and unpainted, but why settle?

MSP brush-on primer didn't dry properly on my first test subjects. Backing up and consulting Amazon reviews, I try a coating of all-surface white acrylic as primer.

After a couple hours that's dry, and I start layering a base coat on the Veskarium Transport.

(1) Did you try the MSP brush-on primer again after washing them?

(2) What brand of white acrylic did you use?  Is it a paint, not a primer?

Testing MSP primer after a proper scrubbing overnight tonight.

I'm using craft smart multi surface premium satin acrylic. It is technically a paint rather than a primer.

 

After tonight's work, the last primer coat coat is drying on the Pact Worlds Corvette.

The base coat is drying on the Diasporan Pirate Ship

And ink is drying on the underside of the Veskarium Transport.

From left to right:

* The windows of the diasporan pirate ship needed a lot of touch-up work, but are starting to look ok.

* Got new paints in and put them to use on the diasporan transport. Now getting ink drying on its top.

* Ink on the top of the veskarium transport is drying.

 

To answer earlier questions; even with a proper scrubbing, MSP primer isn't drying on my test model. Must be something in the plastic of these ships that doesn't go with it.

Looks good! How cheap were they?

 

Technically, I got them as a gift. However, I see a 72-pack of them is selling for about 4 USD on Amazon.

Most of the sculpts are repeated 2x or 3x in the bag, which can be good or bad depending on what you're looking for.

Not happy with how my brybrushing attempts on the veskarium transport turned out. As in "I should strip this mess and start over."
