Those are pretty cool looking. I like these alternate paint schemes. Are you envisioning them as different fleets (Federation border, Lyran border, Klingon border) or just different schemes mixed among the standard colors?

Thanks. I did the scheme just for variety. I will mix and match them in scenarios with my other ships. Although, they would be very useful to play a Kzinti civil war. I will be posting these same pictures and a few more over the next few days in the Starline 2400 painting examples topic.

I'm impressed by all those nice, clean edges on all the different paint segments.

Thanks! Tamiya painters tape for 80%, the last 20% by hand with a lot of touch ups.

I have been wanting to do these 2400 vs. 2500 comparison pictures for awhile now.

Here are my alternate paint schemes as I converted them from 2400 BCHs to the 2500 BCHs.

I made the red on the brown ships a brighter red for greater contrast; I am undecided on whether I like the bolder red or more subtle red more.

I had to do some of the colored striping slightly differently because of the detail molding on the 2500s.

The 2400s are clean and the 2500s have some black/brown/rust watercolor weathering.

It was actually easier for me to do this painting on the 2400s.

Some more very nice paint jobs there! Very Happy

I like the striping on both ships, it provides a very nice additional detail without straying too far from the "official" paint scheme as to be unrecognizably Kzinti. I may give some serious thought to borrowing some of your ideas. Wink
