Klingon BATS

Postby scoutdad » Wed May 15, 2013 6:51 pm

I recently found a "Research Station" on shapeways that can be used as a fair approximation of the SFU Battlestation [BATS].

I bought one and painted it in Klingon livery for use in the Battle of Kh'rtis Rock scenario.
It still needs some minor detailing out, but here are some WIP pics for you.

Unfortunately... th mini in the FSW material (Flexible, Strong, White) is a bit grainy and I was in a hurry to get it done.
I should have spent more time sanding and priing ti to reduce the graininess inherent in the 3D printing process... but, live and learn.
The next will be prepped much better before painting begins!

I decided to have some fun with the docking hatch.
Although its not readily visible in these images.. .the interior door to the docking bay is painted in and you can see the yellow/black/yellow safety strips on the runway!

Mt old airbrush (a Badger 150 bought in 1979!) died last year.
My bought me a new Iwata dual action, iternal mix brish for a 31st anniversary present in Feb!

I'm in the process of learning to use an airbrush. I've still not got the mix down right, though it's fine for undercoating and darker colours I've not got white down right yet.

A few thin coats and my Fed DN is looking ok, but I'm wondering whether to do a pin wash using oils on the saucer.
