This is a work of beauty. Well done!
The model was painted various shades of green. You can get a hint of the overall green tint in this shot.
Hmm...guess it was all in the lighting. The TNG Romulan Warbird was painted in similar muted green/gray tones, but it looked extremely green by the time it got to the final cut.
Oh yeah. Who would have guessed from watching the movie that the Vulcan Shuttle was actually painted in pinks and lavenders!?!? It blew my mind when I found out.
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.
I've never seen anything so beautiful.
Indeed. I could easily see this as being a "new" Kronos One for the Chancellor/Emperor. Well done sir!
The colors are very Boba Fett. . . not sure if they quite work though.
The big bright red on such big areas, especially the two sections on the top rear seem to scale it down some, even giving it a toy-like look.
The slate and seafoam colors are great, but I just don't think you can use that bright red with them like you can get away with on the darker military and olive tones of the bird of prey. Even then the red tended to look rustier or more weathered or something.
As far as the pattern of the accent color (whatever you use) I think you might find that freeing yourself from the patterns of panels and greeblies will allow a more even and pleasing aesthetic. With more even tones (such as before painting), the panels flowed into the larger shapes of the ship much more naturally. With the red shapes breaking up that flow it is much harder to appreciate the ship as a whole.
I love the model, but right now she looks like a pretty girl in too much makeup.
Oooh! I like it! Even Kronos One was a bit brightly painted in real life, and the filming process toned it down a bit.
would be perfect (to me) if those back top engine-thingys werent red.
very very awesome!
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.
Sir Bedevere: There are ways of telling whether she is a witch.
Peasant 1: Are there? Oh well, tell us.
Sir Bedevere: Tell me. What do you do with witches?
Peasant 1: Burn them!
Sir Bedevere: And what do you burn, apart from witches?
Peasant 1: More witches!
Peasant 2: Wood!
Sir Bedevere: Good. Now, why do witches burn?
Peasant 3: ...because they're made of... wood?
Sir Bedevere: Good. So how do you tell whether she is made of wood?
Peasant 1: Build a bridge out of her!
Sir Bedevere: But can you not also build bridges out of stone?
Peasant 1: Oh yeah...
Sir Bedevere: Does wood sink in water?
Peasant 1: No, no, it floats!... It floats! Throw her into the pond!
Sir Bedevere: No, no. What else floats in water?
Peasant 1: Bread.
Peasant 2: Apples.
Peasant 3: Very small rocks.
Peasant 1: Cider.
Peasant 2: Gravy.
Peasant 3: Cherries.
Peasant 1: Mud.
Peasant 2: Churches.
Peasant 3: Lead! Lead!
King Arthur: A Duck.
Sir Bedevere: ...Exactly! So, logically...
Peasant 1: If she weighed the same as a duck... she's made of wood.
Sir Bedevere: And therefore...
Peasant 2: ...A witch!
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.
