Too much is always a good place to start!

Time for some convoy action!

Really very nicely modeled. While viewing the fly-by of the spaceships, I imagined a solo/one-manned cloaked space sub lurking in a dust cloud, which was left floating in space by a passing asteroid field. Have fun!

Those look really great!

Thanks for sharing.

I like the darker blue containers too, so no need to repaint those as far as I'm concerned, unless you really want to.

Looks great!
I think the colors worked out really nicely.

I don't think you should change the colour
real containers don't match all that well
What they really need is logos of the shipping companies :-)

Can you ever have too many miniatures………absolutely not, dont change colours as different hues suggests reality and yeah if possible and you could put a logo or 2 on some fab, if not still fab.thanks for sharing

Thanks for the comments guy's, I think that I will leave the colour as it is.

I had thought of doing some sort of logo's or at least some writing on the ships but was not sure how as they are very small, I will have a look around for some decals I guess for any writing as I don't think my freehand skills are up to it.

But I might have a look on the interweb to see if I can get some ideas for container company logos that I may be able to paint on…

Then I will need to get them on the table for some convoy action!! ;O)
