So, with a week's worth of creative juices stored up, what did I do today? I made some space ships of course! Our monthly Star Fleet Battles game is next Sunday and having rolled on the "random ship generator" I was dealt a force of two ISC PFs (fast patrol craft) for the game. Now most folks would have proxied something but no, a challenge like this doesn't come around very often so I decided to make some.
Step 1 - hulls. I commandeered some DW packaging and cut out 6 triangular shapes for the ship hulls.
They aren't big at all, but then again, neither are PFs.
Step 2 - add the cylindrical sections. Some carefully cut-up toothpicks worked nicely.
I of course put magnets on the bottoms so they'd marry up with my flight stands.
Step 3 - paint 'em up! I haven't got any other ISC ships yet, so I went with a bright-as-day light orange.The leader has the green stripe, the EW craft has the white stripe.
Not too shabby at all for about 2 hours of work invested. I can't wait to have a go with them next Sunday!
