This is an early layout - I'm not too sure of the eventual layout-


this is way early in the process mostly mocking up the pieces.

I like the tie-downs on the Fireball, the guy attached to the wall gives a good sense of zero gravity environment.  The other dude, you have to give him something more interesting to do, maybe have him crouching on the side of the wall or something.

What's the paintscheme of the Fireball going to be?  Shiny metal looks surprisingly good.

Paint scheme for the Fireall will be white or low-vis grey - the silver is rub-n-buff. I found that if you paint over rub-n-buff then take sone tape you can pull son convincing chipping and flakes of. Either way I want this guy to be a war weary unit lots of weathering - can't use rust cause he's a spaceorne unit and I dont like the idea of the "cast iron" texture for what is essentially a space vehicle, I may try to come up with a proper "ferro-ceramic" texture or an ablative coating- Not too sure this is early in the build
