Builds in Progress  - 
 
Last week I finally got the long-awaited spare part for my airbrush and could get on with the project. The pattern is a product of the infamous Stetson-Harrison method. This is the base look of the model right now, it's just going to get some washes on it and then the decals - which I'm already dreading a bit.

Thanks to my good experiences with the Metal Earth Models AT-AT I got a TIE Fighter and a Star Destroyer. I am most definitely not going to run out of stuff to do :)

Having my plans ruined by my own stupidity I did some tiny detail work meanwhile. I´m going with a pretty new look this time, as if the plane was just serviced and all. Hope it works out :)

The long-awaited camo decision (64th Aggressor) was made and painting started - and then ended. Why did I do something like that? Because I dropped and irretrievably lost the tip of my airbrush while cleaning the pieces. And before you ask or say so: yes, I did feel and still do feel like a total idiot.

I´ll get the proper (hopefully) piece in about 1,5 weeks when my minivacation is over. Then I´ll return to business and reportage.

Following my "let's see what happens"-method I painted the cockpit after closing it inside the airframe. Apart from the joystick blocking a part of the decal it went just nicely.

One could ask why the model came with just a joystick and no throttle. I guess it'd be too much for the basic model, that's what the aftermarket kits are for, right? Or evergreen. No matter, I am going with the kit pieces + separate armament.

Just in case someone actually follows this: I cannot guarantee sharing links over the next two Wednesday middays (EET) as I'll be quite AFK, but I'll do what I can :)

A quick post now, as I only blabber about the priming.
Luckily I had prewritten these posts in good time, as the following day I, eh, blundered and had a forced four-week break. That ends today when I go pick up the critical replacement part for my airbrush...
