Here's a picture of our Colonial Warriors to the rescue:

They are painted gray with touch-ups of black, red & silver Sharpie and white paint -- NOTE: they are real tiny, a dozen in formation easily fitting within 1 square inch!

Launch all vipers to intercept!

They would go sub-atomic into the Quantum Realm where physics and reality no longer matter and start slipping through the cracks in space/time, never to be seen again. :angel:

I was placing them for the photo with a paintbrush when it did a full 360 spin knocking a viper onto the carpet. Miraculously, I was able to find it!

I've decided to shuffle things around a bit -- Battlestar Galactica stuff will be pushed to some future thread and Real/Space & Classic Sci-Fi will be brought back into this one. To reflect the updated changes:

Moved from another thread...

12-15. Classic Sci-Fi

Here's a picture of the 50's era Cosmostrator, C-57D, Polaris & Space Ark:

They are painted either aluminum or steel (apparently the only color rockets/saucers/spaceships came in "back in the day")!

Cue the theremin for the sci-fi-y ethereal/eerie music!

Try this- when painting 1:2256th scale Star Wars fighters, I first glue them onto black Beading Stems.
Those are found in any crafts store and are 1-3" long straight pins painted black.
The flat heads are a perfect mounting point for tiny subjects.

Ooh, great tip. Thanks!

Taking a cue from my paper model, I used a shortcut by placing a resized picture on the deck instead of the lengthier painting plus multiple decals.

I put the angled deck on the USS Abraham Lincoln (1/2400 micronaut model) With paint and one tiny bit of decal at a time. It was a bear. I like the pciture idea.
