Cleaning up my room has resulted in finding a ton of plastic and paper boxes. The other important result was organizing my bits into two larger containers, one for bigger and one for smaller pieces. Now I had a lot of scrap, glue and boxes I wouldn't use for 'Jazygia 1996'.
Bought some metallics earlier and it was high time to use'em. Thus was born this little side-project, the 'build spaceships out of possibly everything' or BSooPE.
Most of these space vehicles are multi-functional. This, for example, can be either a warship or a merchant vessel.
Parts: cardboard, beer bottle caps, the little tripods from pizza boxes. A plastic cap, a piece from a pen.
This is a heavily armored pirate ship with a high bridge.
Parts: cork, beer bottle capst, plastic pen, another piece of pen, lot of cardboard.
The most modern of the five, this is a rocket/command cruiser in a nice greenish blue metal color.
It is made of another bottle cap, a piece of pen, and four dominoes that Tesco used to give away.
Another cruiser/freighter armed mostly with missiles.
Another domino and the box of my old fountain pen was used for this.
The most interesting piece, a warship, possibly a pocket cruiser.
The parts on this were: an old earphone; a cigar box cap; wings from an old plastic toy plane; two winged hussar wings; three acrylic paint bottle caps; two stripes of plasticard; two Pz V Panther hulls from the PSC box I had not used; a gun mantle from the Revell WW2 German artillery box; a rocket from god knows where.
The painting on most have been similar, with a basecoat, glaze, drybrush combo. The glazing was left out on the first (grey) ship and the last.
