I like it -- the various planes that have served as Air Force One have had similar, distinctive paint schemes, so this makes sense.

Maybe it's the famed D7c "Doomslayer" from SFB.

Thanks for the great suggestions. My original idea was to make this ship just a ship of the line, a common destroyer or something. But I decided to make it a flagship instead. Here's what I have so far on the colors. I wanted the base color to be reminiscent of the original D7 paint.


Beautiful

If I may be so bold. Bedevere was knighted at the end of this scene so he would not properly be referred to as "sir" only this far into the screenplay.

Now back to your regularly scheduled thread...

This model is awesome. Nice job on it.
I'll echo what Venardhi said and maybe tone down the reds a bit. But otherwise it's slick looking.

The reds aren't that bright, they're just showing up that way on camera for some reason.

Personally, I'm not loving the red. It's distracting me from the lines of the ship and superimposing other silhouettes upon it.

Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

I'm going to tone down the red, and paint the top engines dark gray. I don't want to lose the red completely though. I'll be back in 1 hour.

Ok I toned down the reds a little, and got rid of the red engines on top.

Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

That is a definite improvement, but I think you can still do better with the use of the red rather than using the paint bucket on the most convenient panels. If I get some time this weekend would you mind if I take my photoshop to it for a few suggestions?

Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

I have to agree... I really loved this when it was monochromatic... but once the over-emphasized panel accents were in place, it really ruined the effect for me.

SUBTLE is better. The TMP Klingon ship worked, because it was very, very subtle. Qo'nos 1 was okay, as well, because it was subtle. The TMP 1701 was subtle... you get the idea.

Go with big, bold coloring, and it doesn't look like a ship anymore, it looks like a toy.

Remember... color variation is less detectable by the human eye the further away from your viewing object you are. So, you model "scale" in part by making colors as similar as possible while still maintaining detail.

Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

I'm not liking the red either, I'm thinking of going with the subtle pattern too. Slightly different shades of grey and green. I still want to keep the light green/gray base coat though as an homage to the original D7 and not the darker green of the K'tinga.
