Sorry it’s been a little while, I’ve been busy with getting ready for contract negotiations at work. So I didn’t like the original color so I’ve modified it slightly and have been working on that as well as a more raditional coloring more like the Enterprise D and Voyager paint schemes. Or at least my version of those paint schemes.

So here’s what I have done hopefully I’ll get to move along here in a little bit kind of depends on how well negotiations go etc. etc.:

The new slightly subdued paint scheme for the USS Maximillian.

The more traditional paint scheme for the USS Cygnus.

The darker base coat for the USS Reinhardt. You will notice that I don’t yet have the panel colors for this one yet, because I’ve yet to decide how big of a difference I want.

All of them side by side:

NICE. I like the schemes you chose for they Maximillian and Cygnus. The third seems a lil' dark, but I want to see how it looks when the panels are applied. Good work!

It seems that dark color might be good for the Klingon fleet...

The Ex Wife and her 1/1000 scale D-7 paint inspiration. I actually think I like the Pale green better than the minty version from the round 2 kit... better transition to the TNG era coloring...

Ok, I finally figured a way to hopefully beat the picture posting issue of everything I do seems to turn out sideways or upside down. Take only “square” pictures.

I present the imperial Klingon ship “the Ex-Wife”:

Well, almost. Last one still came up sideways ...

Interesting color combo. It works on the D-10
