Final details, primer and the first pass of the base coat are down! All the little metal bits were added: brass for the main turrets, brass on the side turrets, solder line for the piping on the engines (in retrospect they are a little too thick) and a ‘plug’ for the power jack for use with the battery option. Additional little greeblies were added here and there and all the putty was sanded.

I opted for black primer to save myself the effort of pre-shading a ton of nooks and crannies….

Lastly, I decided to try out Akan 73101 (faded white). It’s a little on the cool side so most likely I’ll do another pass with insignia white for good measure since it has a slightly warmer tone. Still, she’s getting so much closer to the finish line!!
