So, over the holiday I got around to building and painting a few miniatures. Here's what I've got so far, with several more just needing some decals.

A classic Federation CA. The USS Saratoga.

My kitbashed DD using a Zocchi Tug saucer and nacelle. The USS Pompeii:
incomplete
completed

A Federation Strike Cruiser. The USS Daedalus. This one has some cobbled together decals from an NCA, and a CA.

An NCL. The USS Groton from the 6th Fleet defending the Romulan Border before the invasion in Y173. I used the old style text for the name, registry, and engine pennants since this ship was very new at the time.

Very nice work.

Nice clean edges on all your paint work and the decals look fantastic.

The "Saratoga" looks really good!

Did you paint the name/NCC stenciling, or did you use a decal?

Excellent work.

I've tried to get the decals to look good and pretty much gave up on them. I can't seem to get them placed right on the Federation ships...which is why mine are either plain or have leftover 40k decals on them.

I wish I had hands that steady or the tools to make that detailed of a stencil, but it's one of Mark's decals.

Wow! Those minis really look good. I, too, liked the Saratoga. Very clean.

OGOPTIMUS good job on the minis!

What kind of paints do you use? The blue and yellow really stand out.

Thanks!

I actually have a mix-match of a bunch that I've collected over the years:

Games Workshop (metals)
Polly Scale
Model Master Arcyl
Vallejo Paints (not in the traditional jars, they're in squeeze bottles)

The yellow is Model Master Blue Angels Yellow, and the blue is Vallejo Paints Game color Magic Blue.
