Seeing everyone's here so far encouraged me to buy a Federation Squadron Box this morning. I'm jazzed, in a geeky sorta way, and can hardly wait to get in to it.

When I got my first Klingon squadron box, I thought I had a minor casting defect on the C7 because there's a knotch right behind the bridge bubble. Looking at your photos, I see the same knotch. Ergo, it looks like it's something in the design and not the casting. Either way, I don't like it.

Nice, clean work Bill. I especially like your clean-up work on the engine/hull joints - best I've seen so far.

All it took was some Squadron Green putty and patience. Very Happy I bought a couple tubes because I'm gonna need it by the time I get done a couple fleet boxes. Sad

Well I've never painted a starship before, but have just finished my first acta mini, a C7 I think. I'm not to unhappy with it. Though my photography needs practise (how many blurry images did I have to go through). Also just realised looking at the photos there are some bits I still need t do.

Never really been a fan of "green" Klingon ships, but that is one clean looking Klink.
I would not complain if the Klingon High Command assigned that ship to me as a flagship.

Good job, Lee.

One of the things that has always put me off trying starship minis is I find them 'boring' paint scheme wise. Gray or white just strikes me as uninteresting. I needed to have some real color, and green(ish) seemed to be at least a recognised alternative for klingons.

Very nice job on your Klingon mini - the olive colored Klingon ships are beginning to grow on me.

It does look good.

(and it IS a C7.) Wink

I do like that C7.

How did you do your wash?

The only minis I've ever painted before are warhammer ones, so I was using GW paints. The wash was 'devlan mud'.

My squadron grows, F5 and D7 added to the C7. Not sure whether I like the grey bits I added in, but I fell for the issue I always have looking at starship minis, large blocks of one color look uninteresting, so I had to add something else.
