First 22" Eagle Transporter Build

Lighting Kit

Hi Richard. I fixed the link. I needed to change the permissions from friends to public. The lighting kit is from Amazon. It's the RC car flashing light kit by facalhobby.
 
Update

Apologies for the lack of updates but I've been rather busy with work. I haven't done much since my last post other than to spray the command Module and box sections with a white primer, identify imperfections and fill and sand the joints. I've sprayed the eye sections of the beak with Matt Black and I'll give it a day before I mask the Black, ready for the off white. :)

Shading and Washing

I've sprayed the box sections with gloss varnish, waited a day for it to dry and then applied some Humbrol Blue Grey enamal wash. I chose this instead of black as the contrast isn't so harsh. I also masked the beak and sprayed the first light blue/grey colour.

Is that Pink?

Hi Richard, thanks for your comments. I did use Pink which I lightened with some off-White. I've since over-sprayed with some more off-White to tone everything down in an attempt to try and make the shading a little more subtle. I'm still not sure about the Pink though? Does it work? Grateful for feedback on this please. :think:

Eagle Update

Hi guys, apologies for not posting for a while - I've been busy with work!
Here are some shots of the side bays and boxes. I've added some decals that were left over from a few aircraft kits and wrapped some gold foil around the piping to protect them from the Sun's rays!

Spine masking and painting

I've sprayed the spine with off-white and topped it off with a coat of varnish. I then gave it a wash of dark sea grey and cleaned it up before masking the coloured bands. I've still got to give this another coat of varnish.

Beak Painting and Decals

Spent the last two days detailing the beak and giving it a coating of varnish before the weathering process. I really enjoyed this bit! :)
