NAC Furious Escort Cruiser

Here is the NAC Furious escort cruiser. It is one of the most common ships in the NAC fleet and is used for both escort and patrol duties. It comes in torpedo armed and salvo missile armed variants. Painting this ship was relatively straightforward. Start with a white basecoat, add a black wash, follow with a white drybrush, then pick out the details with white.

NAC Huron Light Cruiser

Here is the second of the 2 posts today, the Huron light cruiser. From Fleet Book 1, the Huron is a rebuild of the earlier Hoshino class light cruiser.  Because of the lack of a replacement CL design, the Huron was a result of a study to extend the operational life of the Hoshino. It turned out better than expected. Primarly armed with beam weapons, it is also the smallest NAC ship to support screens for defense.

NAC Ticonderoga Destroyers

I apologize in the delay in posting. I have been on vacation for the past week and work has been keeping me busy. To compensate, this will be the first of 2 post today. We'll start with the NAC Ticonderoga destroyer. One of the older destroyer types in the NAC fleet. The class is primarily armed with beam weapons and PDS. This ship was painted with a white basecoat followed by a black wash then a white drybrush. Details were then picked out (such as the engines). The NAC emblem was then painted on. A relatively straigtforward color scheme.
