VICKERS SWIFT STARFIGHTER BUILD, PART 3
The model is just about ready for paint. A canopy was framed in with stock styrene strips.
External details refined. Lots of panels and doodads.
Here's a color test using Gimp.
Painting begins with light gray on bottom and wing tips.
Dark gray was applied to the top sides. Cotton balls protect the cockpit.
This test shot was done with my cell phone and the blue sky.
Finally decals were applied and weathering was started. Various artist's pastels were used to fade the paint and highlight panels.
The completed model looks great on the wood floors.
