QMx has been working diligently on creating the ultimate Serenity model, and over at FireflyShipWorks.com (where you can follow the progress) they’ve posted the first shots of the paint tests. And it’s looking pretty sweet. The attention spent to give each panel of armor-plating its own look is insanely detailed, and for a good reason.
This is where you can start to really see the difference between a mass-produced replica and a professionally-made film-quality replica: Artistry. Someone completely immersed in Serenity’s design for months, who knows her intimately and with mad skills of simulation, will personally see to it your Serenity will be able to fool even the unforgiving eye of the camera. Remember, before CG there were individually-handcrafted film models. And that’s what creating here.
