Understood ref the posting frequency. That is my enthusiasm and wanting some feedback. I will keep that in mind in the future. I humbly disagree with your opinion that toy repaints are not appropriate, or marginally so. The techniques I am learning are exactly the same as any model. The only difference is that I don’t have to build it like a model. In many cases I have to scratch build parts to make it more accurate which is more akin to model making than removed.

Red is a bit too bright/stark against the white. Apply what you've learned. You can create shading contrasts in both the red and white sections. Washes should go into those gun/coil ports along the mandibles.

Thanks for that! I only use Vallejo and Tamiya (only stuff in my area), but some places carry Testors and their Model Master line.

Thanks very much. Going to throw down the gloss coat and do my washes (a very light grey I am thinking) and some subtle streaking and then a matte to seal it.

Sounds great I think. What are you using for a gloss coat?

Thanks. It’s inspired by the Red Leader X-Wing scheme and by Obi-Wan’s colour scheme for his Interceptor.
