coated the main parts of the hull in primer, greys and whites to get the basic colour

I sprayed the fuel pods a base coat of silver then used a thinned down rusty colour as a wash

then masked off the areas I wanted to have darker and used a heavier wash over them. After drying did a bit of dry brushing to pick out detail and highlights

Nicely weathered.

Very nice. The tanker look is really coming together.

Wow! I love that space rust and space grim on those tanks.

Major components assembled (Nacelles not glued yet) but wanted to get it on a stand and see what it looked like

one of the joints on the hull has split so I'll have to repair it :cry: and more painting, detailing and registry markings

this project has progressed nicely!
there's a lot of hints of bonaventure class there too,
even an homage to USS Ares in the nacelle angle and all.

You could see an episode,
with this ship being battle-damaged,
having been attacked by Klingons, Tholians or the Breen (some speculative badguy)
leaking whatever is in those cargopods...

likewise,
seeing a fleet of these and the Ptolemy, Virago and other freighters,
that'd be awesome too,
evacuating a bunch of colonies along the neutral sector/quadrant (appropriate TMP era terminology) :lol:

After aztecing, will the ship itself be 'spaceweathered' to a similar extent as the cargo containers?
