WIP: Stormfang Gunship, part 2

The main colors on the gunship are done. The color modulation will be toned down following washes and weathering. All of the details still need to be painted and a couple of decals need to be added. Everything should be finished up with this commission within the next week or so.

Upcoming Review: 1/9 Polar Lights Executive Officer Kane

I just received the brand new Executive Officer Kane model kit from Polar Lights from my lovely wife for my birthday! This kit is absolutely outstanding; it is very finely molded and the detail is incredible. I'll have a detailed review of the kit coming up in the next few days, but in the mean time I dry fit the model just to get an idea of what it looks like.
Needless to say, it looks great! Stay tuned for my review of the kit and eventual build.

WIP: Stormfang Gunship

Waiting for the canopy glue to dry and then the hull will be ready for priming.

The gun was painted with Tamiya Dark Iron (XF-84); this was my first time using this color and I love it! It's a dark, black-brown with a hint of metallic in it. I'm not sure how I feel about the glowing runes (though they will be edge highlighted before it's all said and done). All of the weapon options are magnetized as well.
