That's going to be fun... I'm still working through what I will be doing... I've got the tiling down, though, and I know how many (roughly) LEDs will be going into each landing pad. More build pics will be coming soon!...

This guy is sooo close to being done... Still have to weather and slap some decals on it, clean up some of the paint and make it look more real and not so much like a toy...

Colors look perfect!

Are they straight from the bottle or custom mixes?

I'd love to see a list of what paints you used

When I get home, I'll put together a list of the paints I used. They're all Tamiya, with the exception of the base coat. I use Mr. Surfacer 1500 Black as my primer/basecoat.

I used Tamiya paints for the Revell one I did so I might already have some of the same colors

I was curious how similar our paint mixes might be, plus I like the darker olive green color on yours as I think mine was a little too blackish green

I can tell you that's JA Green... I think... Either that or JN Green. Need to check my bottle at home. No mixing for that color. All the others, with the exception of the interior green (field gray), were custom mixes. Oh, besides the maroon color on the bottom hull.. That was hull red.

Definitely JA green... Here's some weathering and detail work on the bottom guns...

JA Green is definitely what I used

I'll have to try the Hull Red.

I had used the Revell as practice for the Fine Molds and I wound up mixing red and dark brown and wasn't 100% satisfied with it
