Hey Buckaroo, it's interesting that you should bring up BSG and the Buck Rogers fighter (in your video).

Starfire 2, which introduced fighters, came out a year or so after Original BSG and BR, so the graphics guys obviously took inspiration from them. The Terran fighters and SFB A-10 were strongly reminiscent of the BR fighter.

I think the Rigelian fighter silhouette was used for the SFB F-14 as well. I might have those mixed up.

Good video! Any chance we see one where you instruct us on how to paint properly, perhaps with that Terran BB?

Can I second that? I just learned that last week... one coat is not enough.

Well, I've already got the BB pretty much done but I might produce something in the future.
Painting tutorials are pretty tough to make compared to other content but I won't rule it out.

If you use Citadel brand water you can get away with 1.5 coats

I'm using Army Paints I think... my issue was with FUD, it looks gray* with 1 coat but if you hold up to a light you can see through it. With two coats it blocks the transparency.

* I am using a primer first so I can get some good detail pics for the shapeways site. Then I will paint them... just haven't decided if I'm going to go with the traditional colors or do something unique.

I basecoat with Tamiya fine primer (Grey). then work up the color with normal paints.

I use plain cheap-@$$ flat white or flat black spray paint from Wal-Mart or Lowe's. Then Citadel paints, starting to use Army Painter or Reaper paints now.

I originally used a spray but I found it was waaaay to easy to either miss the inside of cracks and corners or, when attempting to reach those hard-to-reach parts, too easy to get too much paint on the not-so-hard-to-reach parts around the hard-to-reach-part. I ended up using a brush to remove or spread around the paint I just sprayed on. So I just switched to a paint-on primer so I could control the paint better since I was doing it anyway.
