This is absolutely stunning. I'm very interested in learning how the weathering was done. Just superb.
First I drew the panel lines on with a mechanical pencil, using tape as a guide.

Then I airbrushed on a few coats of Future Floor Polish to make her smooth, and decaled the model.

Next, a few coats of Micro Flat to kill the shine.

Then I gave the whole model a sloppy wash of very thinned black tempera paint, occasionally using a tissue to wipe it gently aftward. The idea is to give the ship a kind of uneven tone, so it's not all one shade and looks a bit dirty.

Then (after that dried) I scraped some dark gray chalk pastel off the stick and onto a card, dabbed a Q-Tip in the dust, and gently brushed the pastels over each panel line. Then pastels on a brush, more heavily in the nooks and crannies to bring out shadows. I also used a little bit of brown and olive.

Then I took a tissue again and gently wiped aftwards, getting light streaks.

More coats of Micro Flat to seal the pastels on.

That's about it!

Awesome. Reminds me of Bio Trimble's Antates from her Concordance.

Freighter? Heck, I would serve on her as a frontline cruiser.

Along those lines.

Re: Old Freighter bash

I think this is one of my favorites of your designs. It's so refreshing to see new shapes incorporated into kitbashed Starfleet, and the Leif Ericson integrates well!

I still think that would make for a good deep space exploratory vessel.

She's a lovable old barge, nice action pics there.

In canon trek only the Sydney class had the look and feel of a freighter/transport I happen to like that class a lot as well.
