With just four days to go before the start of my next group build and with the Diablo on hold pending new glassware, I thought I'd try this dinky little thing. (Just 100mm long).

Parts count is just twenty and everything snaps together. So I suppose it's all about the paint. With no AB available to me, I'll just have to see what I can achieve with rattle cans and brushing.

Hope you keep all your little waste bits of PE and odds and ends of wire and stuff .... That's what you need to get to it and super detail this little kit....

I do Colin..... unfortunately they are packed away at the far end of the container!!!

Well, it's all together now. (all 18 parts) Just needs a light clear coat and it will be ready for detail painting.





The instructions call for the rear end (clear styrene) to be painted light blue but I wanted something a bit more believable so I found this on the web, re-sized it and printed it off:

I gave the whole upper surface a heavy black wash:



Then removed most of it with a cotton bud dipped in meths:





I'll see how it looks tomorrow when I may take some more off.

Looks good at the moment Al.

Maybe a dry brush with some silver to accentuate the raised points and give it a little space damage?

I'll try the dry brushing silver Colin and I like the idea of 'space damage'...... just not sure how to do it.

Looks convincing to me Al, I like your engine light and weathering. I have this in 1/48ish, would love to build it with all the PE add-on bits.

In the spacey things I've done, I've gone for worn leading edges, pastel dust "meteorite impact", a bit of lighter coloured dust embedded on the lower area from landing ..... That sort of thing ... At the end of the day it can't be incorrect eh lol

I liked it with the original dark wash too. It would look fine with a lighter look as well. In truth, sci-fi projects are a real "free hand" genre. Any weathering will improve these projects.

Looks great. Both the heavy and the wiped shots look great. Nice work, Al.
