Love that blue. Fantastic work on the painting and the sculpted stowage parts.

Lovely, the style of the whole thing looks so consistent!
Love the bags and blankets.
You must have so many of this kind of pieces, how do you store them? Are they displayed?

Thanks guys. I appreciate the comments.

The blue. I wish I knew what I did. The base color is Vallejo Flat Blue if that helps.

Jammed in a pantry. Saddest thing you have ever seen. My bases are sized according to how much room I have left. My next one will be 5x7 and then I'm done with modeling forever.  :( :lol: Seriously, I'll have to figure something out soon. I am out of room.

It's not that the blue looks like a special blue color (also looks like it could had been Tamiya Flat Blue), I think it just looks nice and vivid/deep here in contrast to the rest and adds some nice visual interest.
