3dprinting painting airbrushing spaceship wip logh

The Barbarossa from LoGH

I'd recently reverse engineered and extracted all the 3D models from the 2008 PC game of the Anime Series 'Legend of Galactic Heroes'. I've started to work through the models, high-polyize-and-improve them where possible and make them 3D printable.

I actually already own a ton of LoGH official Fleet File Collection kits I've collected over the years, so I was curious to see how a personal print and paint would compare to the official sets.

Here's the first  ship test - the Barbarossa, Kercheis' flagship:

I'm relatively happy with it as a test. The paint technique needs a little work (I still suck at the wash stage. I used my Valejo washes this time and it's just a little too much, too thick and it pooled and left streaks and blobs. I really need to properly investigate how to use my oil washes). I need to work on the details a bit more, and perhaps model the actual recesses and holes into the mesh.

It'll be interesting to see how this prints when I get my new 4K Mono LCD resin printed soon. I'm looking forward to the increased speed (2-3sec per layer instead of 8-12sec) but the resolution will hopefully be the biggest boost. Some of the layer lines are visible in this print based on how I laid it out on the bed.

I've also ordered a set of Imperial/Alliance water decals to see if that helps a bit. As always, I'll post more as I get this test model completed.

Who I am

I'm Blake and I like to tinker with things and make stuff. When I'm not programming or developing random systems, I'm playing with electronics, doodling bits of art, 3D modelling or sculpting and painting things or nerding out watching sci-fi or horror TV.

From 2001 I worked in the games industry, eventually specialising in tools to aid in the development of video games and their engines. In 2011 I left the industry and teamed up with a few other talented composers to utilise my knowledge to help build the company 'Spitfire Audio'.

I also periodically compose soundtracks for video-games and have worked on titles such as The Stanley Parable and Portal Knights. You've probably also heard my music in random TV commercials at some point.

What I'm using to create

I use various bits and bobs to craft my shiz.

  • Phrozen Sonic Mighty 4k & Mini 4k
  • Phrozen Aqua Resin Grey 4k
  • Anycubic Photon LCD resin printer,
  • Vallejo Model Color, Game Air, various sets,
  • Iwata Eclipse HP-CS & Studio Smart Jet Pro Compressor,
  • Random cheapo airbrushes for base coats.
