I did not buy into any of the 2nd Dynasty Kickstarters as I have not been planning on getting into 3d printing. Saying that I had my eye on their shuttle from day one of the Kickstarter. Proteus 3d is licensed to sell the design and the price point was within my hobby budget so I took the plunge. https://www.proteus3dmodelling.com/ I am quite happy with the product and have started working on it.




The plan is to paint it in the same style as the old Peter Ellison's paintings from the 70s. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/AcdXxSX2hbEXTLuEy4SNwkXR3XlcQddS-0FmSYo9JoAAGGxy__awLFM6xzP9SMU7QMT62npJc8G4QrPymVu9-8GS147tgZRKiAhS-Gwxt7oH5x9NX35INrWZtFjzn0cr-duywy_McTppRun1P75ueIwjDg
Here is the test paint of the nacelles and engine bells.

I will chip paint and weather the exterior with oils and powders after I finish the basic paint job on the whole exterior. I also need a new pot of white as mine does not match the base coat.

That's a nifty looking ship! And I'm liking the colors so far!

That is a cool model and an awesome source of inspiration for the paintjob.

Base paint is pretty much done. One or two touchups and it is ready for some decals and weathering.



Hope you like.

It looks so sci-fi! I absolutely love it! Great work on the clean white lines and checks too. The exposed engine nacelles are beautiful!

This shuttle looks like it belongs in the cleanest scifi setting. Fantastic.

Thanks for the comps all.

That will change soon enough. I have been waiting to finish the top prior to decals, chipping and weathering. I am looking to paint it up as a workhorse shuttle. Weathered and reasonably grimy.

Started working on the interior. Trying a new colour pallet and still have touch ups to do.



And a picture of the logo on one of the tails.
