I had to look that up, I've never heard it before! Not a Hank Williams fan here.
This is absolutely stunning. I'm very interested in learning how the weathering was done. Just superb.
Wow, that model looks incredible. Actually all of your models look great. I wish I had a 10th of your modelling skills.
Mister Roberts? Ensign Pulver? Is that you?
Really great work!
Lol...I dunno, looking at the ship, it looked like it had a story, some history...a testament to your building skills.
I know, maybe they picked up a renegade doctor and an old preacher as passengers...
Well hell, not everybody can be a Hank Williams fan!
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.
So would there be a palm tree on the bridge, too?
There is now!
How about some fuzzy dice?
So whens the ship page for this going to up?
Here she is in action (as it were) folks:
Lots more pics of the model at the "photo link" on the web page.
This page proves only Forbin can make Starfleet freighter ships look Awesome
