Starshipmodelers reference shots. They are awesome and very detailed.
Acrylic paint from walmart...yes i typed it. This stuff is cheap and is easily fixed if it gets screwed up, it can be thinned and sent through and airbrush, and brushed very well. It also drys quick for insant handling, and really give the color that "powder aztec" look so many trek ships have. The lines were done with a light pencil first, then some water color pencils.
Are you painting this free hand or are you masking it off???
What kind of acrylics from Walmart? the cheapy craft .75 kind? What colors exactly?
I'm not sure I follow you on the pencils and water color pencils. Are using the pencils to draw the lines and then paint in the detail with the acrylic paint?
Are the water color pencils used to do the same or used as actuall color for the model?
If the water color pencils are used for color, how do they hold up to clear sealers once the decals are in place?
Sorry for all the questions, I just need to figure out what your doing so I can do the same.
