 I often primer two or three times before I find and fix all my goofs. Looking good! I think it ought to have bigger wings, but I'm probably too influenced by the standard 400 ton Far Trader design. ;)

Stage 2. Blue !!!


Stage 3. Blue with more Bluey Blue

Around the final bend, heading into the straight.

Calling it done

This is what we ended up with


Cargo Containers - 3D printed, so not fantastic, but good enough for Government.... errrr BTS work.

Top view

Close up of some damage (Actually caused by me splitting the bit of Train Cab I used here.)



Lights !!

bit out of focus... grrrrrr !


Engines. Pretty happy with the result here. Getting a nice subdued glow is hard, but diffused with some Foam and the main arrays is actually part of a Flash bulb unit from the dim dark
ages when Cameras used to have to use external flashes

I am now heading toward a Traveller (Sci Fi RPG from last century) style ship, something like a 400/500 ton Free Trader. This might make 1/144 scale maybe, I will have to scale it out a bit more and maybe make a bunch of smaller containers.

I came to this party late and worked backwards. First thing I thought of when I saw the final product was "TRAVELER".
