1/2500 half finished projects #2. Akira class- finished

Post by andyh » Sat Jun 23, 2018 4:39 am

Another share the shame project that’s been sitting on my bench for about a year.

This one is so close though! It only needs a bit more detailing paint and decals!

I’m using the “it’s winter down here and way to cold to paint” as an excuse, however that doesn’t work so well as the only painting needed is by brush, not spraying :(

Lookin' good, Andy! What made you choose such a light color? Usually, folks go with a slightly darker, more gray color, so I'm curious to know your thoughts on the difference in shade.

Yeah, I like this shade too, I want to make a ISS version of some ships and I’d like them to be light shaded :mrgreen:

I think the lighter shade came from the original 3D images that were released the the Startrek Fact filed magazine many years ago.

I've been AWOL for a few weeks after finishing my USS Curry build but I'm back now to get the Akira finished. Started masking and painting the raised panels.

So when the Akira is done will you be finishing the Akita? Don't see many good dog models around here. ;)
