The next step on the Normandy is in progress. I have finally gotten the yellow strips to where I want them. I spent a painting session adding in the red squares for the window lights. I will be brightening the windows to yellow or orange and then bring it back with a few washes. I want the red glow to be much darker and the pin pricks of light to really stand out.

This is one of the larger models I have gotten the chance to work with. First rounds of cleaning was a lot of sanding and adding a bit of filler to get those striations as minimal as I can. After that, I primed the model in black and white, in generally the areas I wanted. There are a lot of angles in the design of the colour scheme for the Normandy, so masking was necessary. I did the black first, so now I’m masking that to do the white.

The scheme with the yellow splashes has more of a warmer white, so I will be going for that when I build up the layers. I have to admit, I made a mistake in doing the yellow strip in the front. It’s supposed to zig and zag, but I only made it zag. I will have it fixed after I finish the white.
