Paneling is complete on the top half! There is now eleven different colors on the top half of the fuselage, with the beige along the droid trench a different shade than the beige on the nose. I've also completed the few panels on bottom half of the fuselage, which can be seen in the lower picture. The color work is far less extensive on the bottom compared to the top, most likely because the bottom of the ship is rarely seen in the movie.
Now that all of the painting is complete, the next step will be to give the entire model a light rub with some high grit sandpaper to tone the boldness of the panels down, followed by an overall ocher filter to warm the entire model, and then begin work on the detailed weathering with oils and then pigments.
