Out of all the techniques presented on this blog, the spaghetti technique seems to yield ships with the most appropriate appearance of scale. I've therefore decided to focus my efforts on making fleets of these little guys. Unfortunately my attempts at making a mold of a previous pasta-vessel failed; since these ships are so inexpensive and easy however, I will just make each one a unique design.
The one thing I'm still working on is painting them. While gray looks great, I do want some more variation. I'm continuing to experiment with inks but for my next ship I might follow Desert Scribe's techniques and dry brush over black primer.
