could you give us those dimensions in meters, please.
Technically, the size is listed in the top image in the top right corner in cm. So 5.65 cm for the length. My models are just eyeballed. I don't model them to scale. I don't even know what the length of this ship is. Just using the one inked Keith-drawing as a reference.

I see.

There's already a ship painted that way. And it has that name, even. It wouldn't make sense for two ships to both have the same custom paint job in the TU.
Fair point. Looking forward to seeing your new designs. :D

Here is one paint job variant so far. I eventually do two paint jobs for a model. Depending on what a game session might need.

She has a name now.

Some renders.

A passenger sits in the Captain's chair, waiting for help to arrive.

Fixed the lettering (it was a free font I downloaded).

I'm glad someone on the forums (I forget who) asked me to model one of these.

These are nice. Do you plan to do interior views?

No. I just make lo-res ship models for rendered scenes. I did make interiors for one ship though. But that was
because I needed a deckplan to show to one of my players once.

Here, I dragged out my old Carrara 5.1 Pro with WireFrame Pro installed, and
imported my Free Trader model to get this vintage illustration look. It's
one of the reasons I still have Carrara.
