thanks

I finished the landing craft

I added some decals I had left over from some other kits, including numbers from the Fine Molds 1/500 yukikaze and some from the UN markings from the 1/72 cosmo zero kit
Forgive the red/yellow "caution" stripes around the hatch door in the front. I hand painted them, so up close they are a little uneven
Also I'll try to get better pics when I get them with the bigger ships

Finished the EDF Patrol Ship Yuunagi






I still seem to be unable to post inline pics for some. (maybe a size thing?)

so here are the links for the EDF Cruiser

These are looking pretty good

Man! These all look GREAT!
You helped twist my arm into buying the big box set of SBY mecha kits!
More pics, please!

Thanks!

Looking forward to seeing those!

Speaking of the mecha stuff, I am working on the two little mecha kits inside the EDF "Captial Ship"

Wow, was the alignment on these parts and the gaps bad!

I though I had it minimized, but looking at these large zoomed in pics I see I need to go back an fill some gaps. The oil washes helped make them much more obvious. But for now, here is where I am at



You can really see the misalignment of the halves here


and the gaps



This one wasn't as bad except for the back

Thanks!

Speaking of which, here is the Capital Ship

I apparently forgot a couple small guns on the bridge tower, and I missed painting the center piece on the "wave motion"? gun at the front, and the red glow effect on the two side pods, but other than that it is done.

I skipped painting the back thruster red like on the box art, I think it looks better grey









"dramatic lighting"  :D (actually the sun went behind some clouds. I use my photo booth right next to a window to get natural light)



And with the mini kits

Turned out great- though I think it could use some decals to add a bit of scale detail and color. Maybe a ship number decal from a naval battleship kit.

Also, I like that you painted the wave motion cannon and lower intake thingie white instead of the pale yellow- matches the destroyer nicely.

I agree

I was thinking about adding some ship numbers at the very least

I have a bunch of left over markings from the Fine Molds 1/500 EDF ships

Thanks for the feedback!

Still haven't gotten around to doing the extra markings on the "dreadnaught" (at least that's what it is being called in the new 2202 releases)

I may use the new on as a guide for some extra markings

At any rate. Something newer kit wise, the Dimensional Submarine UX-01. One of my favorite ships from the 2199 series

I tried using white oil paints drybrushed and then blended a little further after doing darker washes to create some highlighting. I still haven't figure out how I want to handle the "glow effect" around the "torpedo tubes"(?)

   Wow   --  I like that !   

    As a space-cruiser  ,
        thought it was a spaceship at first
                                    What an acoustical disaster as a submarine   ;D

    Really like the colors   - what paints ?
