    I'm going to see if I can find those high-saturation colors as well as the dark wash that appears to have been done to mute the colors some. If you need help with finding the kits used, let me know. I'll get you a list of them.

    Small update...did some painting on the greeblies to make them pretty much the same color. Used Model Masters Camouflage Grey FS 36622. After some minor gap filling, will be painting a full basecoat to bring this build up to speed before adding the colors seen on the studio build.

    Small update to my build...these were taken with flash. The grey paint and the white plastic seem to have blended enough in the flash that these pics kind of look good. I need to do some photo editing with contrasts and such so I can make the background less noticeable. Thanks for looking.

    I recently decided to change the nacelles on my original Centaur build. I had this set of nacelles built for another ship. On these nacelles I removed the molded detail that would be on the sides of the nacelles and replaced them with clear grills. I used the grills from the AMT/Ertl 1/1000 USS Excelsior kit:

    Finally started painting the original build I started back in 2005. Sorry for the quality of the photo as I took it with my phone. I need to get Copper paint for the parts and areas that are currently white or painted Gold. I thought I had some but it had dried out. I still need to get different shades of Light Blue for the "Aztec" paneling on the upper and lower Main Hull. The difference in the Blue tones is from the camera flash. I'll post some better photos taken with a better camera.

ID:	786070Still waiting on paints to arrive that I ordered. I went ahead and painted all the greeblies gold. I know I'll have to repaint them in copper. I haven't done any of the "Aztec"panels on the hull yet as I don't have the colors I need yet. I have to get some washes as well to give the overall colors the dark, gritty look they need. Thanks for looking.

    My latest shot of painting: all the "greeblies" have been painted metallic Copper. I have received a few of the paints I ordered as well: Flat White, Ducks Egg Blue, Light Blue. The washes should arrive Wednesday next week so I'll be able to apply those soon. Thanks for looking.

    I've always loved this ship design, and I'm glad to see somebody tackling it. You're doing a great job.

    As can be seen here, I've painted all the "greeblies" on the bottom metallic Copper. I've also started painting the "aztec" pattern on the main hull. I'm painting the pattern freehand just like it was done. I need to repaint the trench a lighter shade of blue or leave it white. Right now it's too dark a shade. Thanks for looking.

    I've done more painting of the "Aztec" paneling on the upper and lower main hull. I also painted over the blue in the trench with flat white. This is more like how the trench should look. I received the washes I ordered. These will be used for more of the paneling shades, as well as for making the overall look more gritty. Thanks for looking.

    This is really great. Such a nice looking ship, especially for a kitbash.

    Thank you. I'm just about finished with painting the "Aztec" panels on the main hull. Once the weather warms up enough to paint outdoors I'll be able to clear coat the entire model and begin the weathering with washes.
