Astro Commander has finished the paint job on his first model miniature, and it's pretty fantastic! The glowing green plasma in the upper right photo was added in later, but the rest was done by careful airbrush. The base is also painted, and everything is front of a starry background. Some of the fine detail is amazing here. We're anxious to see more!
I just got one of these painted.
This is the reason I made any of these. I love Wing Commander and wanted to paint my own touch to those ships. But sadly no one made them, so I had to if I wanted to paint them. I have a few Kilrathi ships about 50% done.
Obviously the lens flare and logo are CG'ed in. All else is painted with my baby airbrush.
