Gunship: First Strike! A hit on Kickstarter and soon available as a PreOrder!

Hi guys,

Just received this 5" long mini of one of my Gunships from shapeways.

I want to pay someone who knows what they are doing to make this look like the one on the cover of our box:

Gunship: First Strike!

I can supply vector art, etc to help with this. I'd like it painted a silver and add blue markings, weathering, etc.

If you are up to this challenge, please hit my Inbox with some pics of things you have painted and a price. I will pay for shipping to and from. I'd like it to be completed within the month of January.

Thanks!

You should post on the mini painters guild.
There are some pretty good painters who take commissions.

My pleasure.

Note: If I'm correct, your model is in SLS nylon (Shapeways' "strong and flexible"). The surface finish of this tech is slightly gainy, it's a limitation that even the best painter won't be able to fully compensate. So it'll be noticeable at very close range.

You can give it a covering of diluted green stuff to mask roughness.
