Finally reached a good time for paint.
Once paint is dry enough to work with, a thorough once-over with 0000 steel wool will bring out highlights and allow some of base color and texture to poke thru.
I kinda like the way this is going so I think we're pretty much ready for final finish coats. I will probably use amber shellac.
Once missions details were finalized, we printed out a copy of the cue sheet on really crappy newsprint paper. It was already a little yellowed with age and we thought this would achieve the effect we were looking for.
We then ran the print through the laminator which applied self adhesive coating to back of print.
The protective covering is removed and print is trimmed to size.
Backing paper is removed from trimmed print and applied to GPS (galactic positioning system) unit.
Many of the accessories originally found on these ships were very often pilfered and then repurposed. This galley fixture was discovered in a yard sale and was reported to have been used as a paperweight. We recognized it immediately as the afterburner which was carried in the forward section of the cargo area. The missions would sometimes continue for a Century or more which meant that the motors would need re-fueling during the mission. The motor of this ship ran almost completely on a mixture of warm, dark, fluid which was brewed from an organic bean that was roasted, gound to a powder and then water, which had been heated on the galley fixture, was run through the powder. This mixture along with the fumes from another organic substance which was ignited and converted to a gas was ingested by the motors at various intervals during the mission. Attempting to run the motors for longer periods without these necessary additives usually resulted in high pitched whining and refusal to complete the mission. The pilots were careful to ensure that there was always a ready supply.
