The Michigan GT is in 5 days, so it's been a mad painting weekend for me. I was hoping to finish my magnetized Cruisers/Heavy Cruisers yesterday... I have one Heavy Cruiser fully painted.
So, I'll do what I can tonight, hopefully finish tommorow, and then do the sloppiest painting ever on my Dreadnought and Escorts... Oh, and at least one Battlecruiser, if not two.
No problem, right?
I do want to share something else. It occurred to me I can quite easily take black and white photos with my Smart Phone. This is a great technique to analyze your paint scheme, as you want the model to be interesting even without color.
As you can see, the model is mostly grey, with a dark area over the engines, and a lot of details are essentially black-lined. This is good, because I don't want anything too bright, as it would detract from the engine glow... When I eventually figure out how to do it. Maybe if I get an airbrush...
In any case, hope you find this helpful, and maybe I'll see you this weekend.
