A recent acquisition

On vacation earlier this month, I managed to visit a couple of game stores in between the sightseeing.  I picked up a whole bunch of fantasy miniatures (more on those soon), but only a single spaceship model.
As you can see, it's a Wagon Wheel frigate from Aerotech, the spaceship game that's a companion to Battletech.  As with most of my spaceship purchases, I probably will end up using this model as something else--the circular sections that rotate for gravity make me think this would make a nice antiquated passenger liner or colony ship.  Any suggestions on a paint scheme?

Those large rotating wheels will always make me think of 2001 A Space Odyssey, so I'd say white shaded grey.

I would also go with a dominantly white paint scheme. The reason being that if you are making it into a non-combatant vehicle (merchant, colony ship, passenger liner, whatever), then it should be distinctly different from warships, just like on our actual oceans.
