Hmmm, I'm not really sure how this is going. I've had a few disasters with this one along the way.
First lesson - trying to get nice blended effects at 1/144 is NOT for a novice and certainly not for a first model at this scale (I cocked that up). On the other hand I'm pleased with the splinter camo pattern.
Anyway, I have a lot of tidying up to do.
The scary bit is the next stage where I am supposed to tone down the whole scheme with a subtle coating of grey, so everything looks weathered and more subdued. Like this...
