That's shaping up nicely. Definitley some nice additions to the surface to help give more a sense of capital ship type scale
If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

Thanks guys. I really do need to get into casting. That being said, I also need to get into lighting, figures, more groundwork, large-scale scratch-building, etc. etc. etc.

Modulation looks sharp on this guy!
Need to build 30 models per year until I'm 90 to clean out the stash. Time to get cracking!

Thank you all for the comments.

I threw about 2 hours or so into it yesterday primarily focusing on finishing up the painting. I also did some chipping using Vallejo paints.

Here's the menacing front. I emulated the viewscreen based on the AT-AT walkers. I painted it red. Then I added a highly thinned Life Color black shade. The water in the acrylics wicked along the edges making it appear to glow. Chipping was done with mostly white paint. I know that after the filter stage, it will tone the white down a bit.

For the blown out panel, I just painted everything very lightly with a few yellow hoses.

Finally, I painted the greeblies on the underside various colors and finished it off with some chipping. I used the sponge method for most of the chipping, then I came back with a tiny brush to add a few larger chips.
