So most of my list of things from my last post have been done. Model now got a gloss coat on it and may get a chance to start some decals tonight.
These were taken just prior to putting the gloss on:
I thought it looked a bit monotone in the engine and gubbins parts so freshened it up with some brassy coloured bits. Also decided that the ribs at the front looked better white than gunmetal as breaks up that area a bit more. Know it doesn’t match the boxart etc but sure there would be some slight variations amongst the Vipers in service.
Do need to tone down the “plasma burn” pigments on the nozzles a bit as bit too blue at the moment. Probably dry brush on some more gunmetal and silver to knock it back into the recesses.
