Finished these off recently and thought you would get a kick out of them. The two tone camo was highlighted twice to try and give each panel a bit of a fade.

I am working on a bit of a tutorial that should be posted soon on my blog, http://triplezeropainting.com

Wow! Those are beauties! Did you outline every panel line by hand, or was the result of exceptionally good drybrushing?

Thanks! :D

Tony, if the pictures in the store are your fleet, then I took inspiration from them.

javelin98, no dry brushing all outlining. Each panel was highlighted twice. I didn't pay too close of attention as to how long each ship took, but I think a conservative guess would say 2 hours for each capital ship. I have CDSU fleet waiting to be painted and I think I will need to find a quicker way. I plan on experimenting with drybrushing, washes, glazes and maybe one highlight and see what happens.

I posted two walkthroughs on my blog detailing the two tone camo and then the highlighting process.

Tony, how is the Pommerania model coming? I would love to add a big honkin capital ship to my fleet!

Cheers,

Ah yes, the Pommerania ...

You might have seen in the Design Studio that the 3D printed model had arrived:

Looks great - really detailed, true to the original model. I cleaned it up, sanded off a few rough edges and then gave it to Phil for mould-making. He put in the vulcaniser and as the plates closed he heard an almighty CRACK - the main hull had basically split in two, it couldn't take the pressure of the mould closing :(

It's not quite back to the drawing board, but I'm going to have to redesign the model a bit so that it's strong (thicker walls and some reinforcing internal buttresses) and we might consider a change of material. I might have to change the dimensions as well and make it a bit less deep (thinner in the vertical axis).
