Currently I'm in the process of getting a good base-coat on everything. If I can stick to my schedule, I'll have the model about 30% done by the end of February, with another month to complete the remainder. If I can get ahead of schedule, great.
The Badger really does make this project possible. Without an airbrush, it would take me years (no hyperbole there) to complete this model. With the airbrush, I can do my priming (Chicago has been a problematic place to prime this winter), base-coating and even some highlighting and shading as I become more proficient.
I'm going to try and do some "test" weathering on the main carapace and head this week, so I should have some additional pictures soon,
