Vogon Construction Fleet
I painted some more Stardate: 3000 minis, this time in the high-visibility color of the Vogon Construction Fleet. Unfortunately, I think I used too light a shade.
The large vessel is a Federation Draco-class destroyer. The pair of smaller craft are alien interceptors, Federation recognition name Vampire. The trio of fighter-sized ships are alien Banshee-class scouts.
Although the orange looks bright in some of these photos, in person
the color appears washed out and faded. For future reference, any
spaceships painted in Vogon orange should be primed white instead of
dark gray. Unfortunately, I've already sprayed the remaining ships with the gray primer.
The larger vessel is intended for clearing shipping lanes of obstructions such as asteroids. The smaller craft provide security for the larger vessels as they work.
These were a test run; I have several more vessels to paint for this faction, including a couple of Star Frontiers ships. And I'll use a darker shade of orange.
