Airbrushes at the ready...

Well That Be The Bulk Of The Painting Done At Last.

Well the last stage of the major paint slinging debarcle is here.

With the main painting on the saucer done. The warp nacelles and pylons likewise so the secondary hull is the last stop on this ride. So a medium grey was mixed up and duly applied, masking aplenty plastered on then a light airbrushing using the large stencil and blowing some darker grey through.

One change to mention here, seeing as how I would be doing some fair amount of painting I thought I would also paint one area that a decal is provided for but I figured why not use a bit more pinstriping tape since I was already using more than a bit of it. It's the 'U' shape uncovered section in the middle of the pic.

The afore mentioned 'U' shape was airbrushed matt black and that completed the paint application.
Well the final job was a mass masking removal, window masks included as thier job was now done. Have to say i'm fairly happy with the result.
