Did some painting over the weekend.  Here's the state of the whole project in a snapshot.

You, sir, are not allowed to attempt a takeover of the solar system until your octopus sobers up.

The green makes the project look even more "VSF" if you know what I mean. The details are picked out

I've been drawing up a dig gondola with the coach inverted; I'm really coming around to the idea, especially as I'm thinking the driver's seat can become the dig's 'flying' bridge. Your work continues to inspire me!

Keep pushing!

Thanks!  I've since put a blue-black wash over the green that brings it more in line with the figures I'm trying to match.  From there, I'm going to probably do a lighter green drybrush and then the metallic trim.

More progress.

Up next is figuring out where I can get white, rose, and blue onto it to match my Hinterlanders.  I then need to finish the brass/bronze or whatever it's going to be, add some brushed steel, and figure out the flags.  I want to also do some sort of glowy effect on the flyers' blades.



Feedback and suggestions are welcomed.

That is quite a group, very impressive!

Suggestions:

Seems you have it pretty much figured out.

Misc.:

Looking forward to seeing them finished. They will go great with your Hinterland army!   :-*

Personally, I can't wait to see a Hinterland crew on your larger flyer.  I will seriously consider a future, unarmed pack of sailors for deck tasks.

Cooool.

I have to figure out the larger flyer first. 

Anyone have suggestions on what vehicles to make with the other 6 coaches I still have left?

You can always send one of them to me, to see what I can come up with!   ;)

Aaright, I think they're done.  Pictures when I can set up something that won't wash them out.

Modelling and painting is what I do to remember who I am when i'm stressed, and I've had foster kids this month...

Really working out to be a group; the inverted coaches don't simply LOOK like inverted coaches next to the steam carriages.

'...where I can get white, rose, and blue onto it to match my Hinterlanders.'

Have you considered painting up the detail on the sides of the coaches? Blue foliage, white or red flowers, vice versa on the 'dots'. Also, I think the tops of the 'nefs could stand a painted banner/insignia, with a German motto.

And some cherubs. I think the Hinterlander truppen would like cherubs...
