Sorry, but I'm going to have to join Broken Records Anonymous after this. The eye is just drawn immediately to that (gonna avoid calling it a staircase) "Fan technique" you used on the rear section. It's funny you mentioned wanting to build a ship using dark bley with few accent colors... Guess what I'm in the middle of right now? And like you, mine looks nothing like what I thought it would when I started. Don't you just love serindipity? Great work Garth! ~ Chris.
The more I look at it, the more I'm drawn to the shape of the wings. What few wings I've tried have always been more airplane-like. These wings (along with the staircase, etc. others mentioned) give this ship some personality. Your splash of color is just right, and I'm lovin' the front section as well. It's a dark bley beauty!
Liar, you've made tons of ships in secret ;-) Without that, I couldn't understand how you can present such a wonderful and creative ship. It's one of the most fantastic I've seen in a while ! Not a long speech : it's on the same level that the amazing ships made by Space Pirate for his dio, and it says a lot. Awesomely awesome !
