How would you Paint the Buzzsaw Shuttle?

33 posts in this topic

If you were to paint a shuttle, primarily used as a Buzzsaw shuttle, how would you do it? What colors wold you use? Woukd there be any interesting detailing?

I myself am having a hard time deciding. I know I want to paint SOMETHING to add a little flare. Maybe I'll just do a dark blue and call it good...

Normal white but with obnoxious blood spatters all over it

 

Actually that sounds pretty stupid and I wouldn't even have bothered posting about it but it's goofy enough that I actually want to see it done

 

And own one :ph34r:

So, if I had the painting ability, I have several ideas that I would love to do with the shuttle:

 

The Shuttle Down By The River: One primer colored wing, rust spots, 'Free Candy' scrawled across the side in spray paint

 

Coruscant ISD: School Bus Yellow with lots of extra red and amber lights. Fold out Stop Sign near the cockpit.

 

Coruscant PD: Striking black and white patterns. Red and Blue light strip along top wing. Easy to remember emergency number: 0118 999 881 999 119 7253

 

Coruscant EMS: Red and White ambulance color pattern. Lots of extra lights glued on everywhere. Also include easy to remember emergency number as above.

 

Coruscant FD: Big red fire engine coloration. Bonus points for fire hose coiled on the wing.

Yes, one must follow the order of operations, otherwise one might think you have one YY-wing instead of two Y-wings. ;)

 

Personally, I would leave it white, but paint the cockpit red and spatter red paint along the leading edges of the wings and fuselage. Simple, but effective.

What, did you run over a bunch of pedestrians?

I'm thinking of going dirty brown, in a steam punk fashion, with a group of ties painted similar. Graffiti and what not. As inspired by one of Sable's suggestions.

I also like the idea of minir detailing. Solid lines. Maybe sports car pin stripes on a glossy metallic body.

Sable, I have the school bus in production, first coat of school bus yellow applied.. lol.. will be adding black striping and lettering, and will add the flip out stop sign in aurabesh.. lol.. thinking I may try to make a working sign instead of a painted on or decaled piece.. my eye surgery has slowed me down, but will begin working on it again soon..

You're all thinking about this wrong, it needs to literally look like a White Albino Space Cow holding a chainsaw. Something like this:

But naturally with a space helmet. And more spots. Cows have spots.

 

Moooooooooo......

 

Edit: OK, we all love to call the Shuttle "White Albino ...". So technically spots don't work with albino. But, it should still have spots. I mean, really, what better way to embarrass your opponent than actually killing him with a flying space cow?

Excuse my ignorance but I only got into the game at Christmas. What is a buzzsaw shuttle?

A lambda shuttle with Fire Control System, Gunner and Engine Upgrade.  The Gunner/FCS combination means that if you fail to damage your target, you get to make the attack again but this time with the benefit of a target lock as well.  It is almost guaranteed to damage it's target each time it fires.  The Engine Upgrade helps it to maneuver to get targets into its sights as well as escape quickly.
