I imagine that you did less brush work at this scale, am I right?
More airbrush/spatter/ pigments, less oil washes
Yeah but there was still plenty of washes, filters, pigments and streaking with the brush.
Thanks again for the kind words guys, it's pretty much finished apart from the cockpit, there's nothing in it at the moment. So here's the bottom:

And the resin sidewalls from Randy Cooper:

A couple more questions...

What is in your cockpit? I don't know if I missed that in the thread.
What did you do about the stock piping? Did you add brass in a couple of places?
Did you replace the inside of all your mechanical wells? (I think you said that jatea supplied some resin casts)

Hey man, the cockpit is empty at the moment. The figs need to be re sculpted and positioned correctly, no pipes added, the only well that was replaced was J's awesome upgrade.
