I'm sitting here thinking what color to paint my Free Trader? The original artwork was B&W, and mostly white. The Traveller far-future looked bright, etc.
I may end up making various paint jobs for this modeled ship. Setting comes first. What is the setting that this ship will be in? How are ships painted in that setting? Were all such ships sold in yellow? What decals do settings glue onto their ships?
For now, I'm just trying out different burn/scratch/pit marks, seeing what jumps out at me for a paint job.
