SS Weippe Build, Part 3

Primer on and now she’s looking like a proper starship.

After primer you can usually spot the places that need more attention.

The base coat of gray was a bit darker than the Sokol for contrast in age. I wanted the Weippe to be older and worn down a bit so weathering should reflect this.

I used mostly black pastels for weathering. There’s also some dry brushing with aluminum. I didn’t do any washes on this model.

This is a good, color corrected image of how she looks now. Worn around the edges but still serviceable.

Here she is on the C-stand being photographed. Her number is 049, same as the famous Corvette from The Cruel Sea novel.
