Commission: Lambda Decimators

So Google has decided to 'Improve' blogger. And of course that means it lacks some previous features and have received some new bugs. Hence the slightly different look from now on.

Anyway, back to the topic. These might not look so fancy but there's a surprising amount of research that has gone into them. Basically I was asked to paint two Lambda shuttles in the same colours as the Decimator. While it's near impossible to 100% match another colour without having the recipe, I have none the less become fairly good at colour matching over the years.

The main grey is a 1:1 mix of Vallejo Game Colour (VGC) Cold Grey and VGC Stonewall Grey, while the dark grey used for some details is 1:2:6 mix of VGC Charred Brown, VGC Cold Grey and Vallejo Model Colour (VMC) German Grey. The tiny blue lights or whatever they are supposed to represent is mainly VGC Wolf Grey with a small amount (5-10%) VGC Ultramarine Blue added.

Note that the Decimator in the last picture is not repainted and is factory standard.
