Whiplash's Hellcat is nearing the home stretch. Panel lines have been completely chiseled into the space frame, so all that remains is the actual painting. Gray filler sections are first, and they're now visible starting on both the top and bottom aft ends and through the top center fuselage. It'll be interesting to see how far he goes with it. Compared to the original primer coat, the ship already has a realistic weathered look. Hopefully this inspires more Wingnuts out there to find a way to creatively express their Wing Commander fandom!
Hi everyone, I'm very excited about this update. This project has been fun, challenging and extremely rewarding so far, and it's now really starting to feel like the hard work is paying off.
What am I rambling on about? Well, I started painting the surface detail. Still WIP, but the results have been... well, judge for yourself. Scroll to the top of the page and compare the "vanilla" version to what you see here.
The ship is really starting to come alive. Hope you like it as much as I do!
