Gorgeous work as usual, the engines lit is really inspiring.. downloaded the image for my own efforts. :)

And here we thought the Firedrake was stunning. This one is mind blowing, primarily due to the freehand painting on the prow!

hehe, well you know how it is. Had to do something with that wide open space on the prow :)

Of course the photos show me all the flaws so I've had to go back in and fix some bits here and there and I definitely need to go back over the engines tomorrow and fix the highlights. I was afraid I hadn't built it up enough and it definitely seems to be the case on the front end of the engines.

As mentioned on the SG forum: excellent prow.
And yes, sometimes you think you're done and then you see the pictures and go like... oh... sh*...

I like how you inverted the colours on the prow compared to the Firedrake. How do they look next to eachother?

My Elsa and Anna are coming along slowly. Anna has seen the most paint.

Hey Horizon,

They look great next to each other. The firedrake does look a bit dull since this one has more contrast but I can probably fix that at some point.

I finished these guys up yesterday and I'm starting to get the shots for the website now to update the product with painted shots. Just have the corvettes to go to finish getting all the Helians painted!
