I remember years ago I was following a thread at SSM about the "correct" color of the TOS-E. It went on forever and I remember one of the board senior members had access to the actual colors used at Paramount. turns out the original color was carried by Sears, and was called "Concrete".

Man, you shoulda seen how fast I flew out to the Sears Hardware center to get a look at that color chip!

When I got there and found it, I was like "really?" Well, it looked like ass to me---and that's when I started to ask myself "what am I doing?"

Go with what you like....

On the point of color----I've really been hung up on that the last year or so. It's driven me away from Trek, BSG, Star wars, etc. only because everybody's ass is wratcheted so tight over color. I have a Jesse Meyer's 1/24 Colonial Viper that's been sitting in a box for years now only because I don't see the point of replicating what everyone else builds.

Let's see....base color white, pre-shade panel ohhh I don't know, dark grey maybe and then mist coat with thinned base color white. Apply the red stripe decals----maybe I'll use the "chipped" decals instead. Do some laser damage ---vary the color on a few panels, a pin wash and VOILA!!!

I've got a Viper that looks like Jason Eaton's and everyone else's!

I absolutely mean no disrespect to anybody that wants a replica of a Viper, Refit "E", Y-wing, X-wing or any other iconic piece of Sci-fi Hardware, but I want something different now and what's worse I'd like to do it with some of these very pieces----but I'm not into the drama of listening to "What the fuck is up the paint on that?" ----you all know the drill....

That's why I had sooooo much fun building that Falke last year.

On the 4 year U-boat build-----I've seen dozens of these bad puppies at our local and regional shows the last few years---judged some of them---and the best ones (to me anyhow) were anything but the standard colors. Actually----I think there may have been just a hint of the standard colors in those builds. All kinds of crazy shit going on----layer upon layer of different color. Metallic iron, steel, varying shades of the original paint worn and faded, light tones of rust stains sreaking down out of Limber holes.....bad ass.....

Guess why my Type VII, and Gato subs have been sitting on a shelf for 4 years?

Like Dave said----it's your model. Have a blast! I have to keep reminding myself of that all the time.

Now I think I'll go put a Polished aluminum finish on my Viper----thanks for the inspiration gents!
Well, Neb, i too like to see different stuff, as a breathe of fresh air from the cookie cutter ships, so, check this out http://www.thereplicapropforum.com/f...ed-9-a-137224/
I painted an x-wing for Evan Wharram, he did the build up, anyway, he wanted something different so i made him a red 9, it is different and got a lot of praise.

Oh I'm loving that! The brass tubing----all that nasty rust and crap all over the engines. NOW it looks like it's been through hell and back!

Kudos Apophis!!!


And to answer the question "How Far Enough?"

"As far as you want...."
