Dived right in on a couple of the smaller ships today, I decided to work on two different types because I wanted to play around with more detailing techniques.
I considered adding more details to them but too much detailing was destroying their rounded shapes which is a key element of their design style. So in this case, less is more and I will likely add some additional detail with painting.
The two I worked on here are a frigate and a destroyers. The frigate is equipped with a twin turret (taken from a Mechwarrior Clix tank) and bow-mounted missile tubes (plastic canvas). The Destroyer is equipped with two single gun turrets (cut sprue and plastic rod) and bow-mounted missiles. Engins are off-cuts from plastic tubes and pearler beads.
It appears that I am going to have to live with a few machining marks on the wood pieces. Five coats of primer, two coats of varnish, and another of black spray paint still leaves some visible tool marks. I can live with this. I still having the final painting to do over this all.
