    Hi again,
    painted a Kilrathi Capital ship.
    The Tri Claw heavy Cruiser:

    IMO one of the best Kilrathis ship designs!
    The funny thing is that the ship is not featured in any of the Wing Commander games, it is a design by Dreamfoundry!

    It was a bit difficult to paint that one, since I made the error of ordering it in WSF, a horrible material in this scale, a lot of sanding was necessary - in the end it was still too rough...

    I found out yesterday that shapeways is increasing their prices. this has a small effect on the larger WC models but the small fighters and mid sized cruisers will be hit harder as they are adding a handling fee per model. This means cruisers will increase in price by 20-50% and fighter sets will increase by even more. If you wanted anythign from them in my or any other shop, and there are a lot of cool models on shapeways, then make your order before october.

    See here for details

    Kilrathi landing pad (resin building from Critical Mass games with printed roof) with Drahlti MkIV (upscaled version by Dreamfoundry). The printed roof is from Dave Graffam Paper terrain, I simply added the Kilrathi symbol with Photoshop and faded it in. It was then printed, laminated and glued to a sheet of plasticard. After that some weathering here and there and a matt varnish.
