Guys, I've got my first Cruel Seas model completed (in fact my 1st ship model ever), but the old girl painted up pretty nicely -

I wanted to make any mistakes on a bigger, non-combat model first, but everything went pretty smoothly, now we'll see if she has smooth sailing in the games to come. (was tempted to paint fat crosshairs on the sides, but……) ;)

First ship model? Never would have guessed that – it looks like you've been painting them for years. Love the weathering – was it airbrushed?

Well Done!

Thank You Guys!

Tony, I've been painting armor and aircraft miniatures for 50+ years, and so have a bag of learned techniques. In the past half-dozen years I've been doing lots of weathering with pigments (you can even do camo patterns using pigments, which feather like air brushing).

Perhaps put a flag on her saying…
