The painting is sort of going well. I have the light green Sky colour finished and I'm really happy with the pre-shadin (for my first try at it). I started painting the 60 Lb rockets this morning and "gorilla thumbs" struck again - one rocket fin assembly is gone when I dropped it and the clamp holding it to the floor...grrr! I'll add that to my scratch build list.

Pictures to be posted in the next few days I hope.

Most of my base coats are done. I messed up a few small areas when I was too vigorous with a solvent soaked brush - removing overspray. Still lots of painting to go...sigh :p

I'm pretty happy with the pre-shading and the stripes (never painted stripes before). Niether is perfect but I think it's a good first attempt.

I going to keep plugging away, a little slowwer now however - I'm back at work tomorrow.

After a bunch of touch-ups... :p
I just finished the gloss coat today. Decals, washes and detail painting up next.

Almost done. Everything is glued in place, and I'm just about ready to give the Wyvern an all over coat of flat clear today. I just got a new computer, so I'll post some pictures shortly.
