That's a tough little ship.

Now that is one intriguing looking ship. Well done so far!

I will try to take pics tomorrow. I bought an airbrush (Paasche EZ starter and canister) and I am practicing. I did a trial run on the main hull and didn't like the results (may have thinned the paint too much). I have the boom section and the engines done so far.

A helpful tip for airbrushing that I guess comes too late, ...practice on something you don't care about until you get good enough to control it for a model. I had a bunch of disposable plastic dinner plates that I painted patterns on and learned how to control the flow and mixtures. You could also use an old model that you think is ugly anyway.

Hey Del,
That is what my wife said after she found out that I tried. "Why didn't you practice first"? I was too excited. Oh well, I stripped the paint and have to prime it again tomorrow. I promise pics on the parts I got done so far tomorrow.
