WIP: Raptors Drop Pod

While I was waiting for the glue to dry after final assembly of the Land Raider Crusader hull, I happened to come across a drop pod on my shelf that was partial painted blue. I had already assembled a majority of the kit, at least to the point where I could paint it in sub-assemblies before completely assembling it. It dawned on me that I should use it as a full scale weathering experiment before I finished the Land Raider (it doesn't help that I also have a bad case of hobby ADD). This model also harkens back to my beginnings in the hobby and it was obvious I didn't really know what I was doing then, considering all the mold lines that were left on it and the bad glue job. Some of the pieces were painted ultramarine blue so I decided just to paint over them seeing as how the entire model was going to be heavily weathered. Here are a few WIP pictures:
