This by far out of the three builds takes the cake Sir.:thumbleft:

but I might add Glenn though in the future to maybe tone down staining for the gunports.I find myself looking at them when it should be the whole model less suttle;different color or dirty up the background more?Not trying to be to critical just an ob.Kevin Cheers
 
Thanks guys I appreciate the feedback.

The staining did turn out a little heavier than I had intended. In the past the pastels seemed to fade by a factor of 50% when I sealed them with Dullcoat so this time I applied them a little heavier so naturally they didn't fade. :rolleyes: Oh well I'll just say that at the height of the battle the mechanics were to busy patching holes and keeping them flying than cleaning them up.
