Sovereign Class Starships

I now have a fair number  Sovereign Class Starships in 1/7000 scale, pretty pleased how the paint job turned out on them given their size it isn’t really possible to add names and registry numbers to the saucer sections so have decided to create a decal for each base giving name number and class to all my ships.

Although I have used “Official” names and registry numbers for a lot of the ships, it was quite interesting to invent my own. I will no doubt make a list of these at some point!!!!

This class of ship serves as a Dreadnought in my fleet (for use with my own rule system)

As for paint job, I sprayed them withprimer paint (light grey) then gave them a black wash. When dry I used same shade of grey dry brushed over the black wash then used a lighter shade of grey over that, dry brushing again. Once that was finished I painted in the wark nacelles, then used a wash of same colour over the top. Deflector dish was a blob of gold.

Very effective way of grabing the detail of all the windows etc!

    Thanks Gobbie, glad they made it across the pond (at sub light speed!!!)
    I’s very easy to get a nice effect and didn’t take to long to do.
    Looking forward to seeing yours all painted up!

    Hey, I am currently painting up my federation fleet. What is the best way to showcase the phaser strips on the ships? I’ve found that trying to paint them directly is a pain in the @**… Did you just do a wet wash on yours to bring out the details?
