    Kill stripes and one of the back panels

    and i have yet to do all the proper weathering

    the weathering one the left hand ear platform went a little wrong but i think i'll live with it

    The back panel looks spot on, have you been leveling the paint as you go with wire wool?

    Go easy though Jon! I don't want you to rub off all the detail and blame me! LOL
    I used a 0000 grade wool which works just right, i think you'll find the texture (especially on the red) will smooth off and the colours deepen slightly. The red on my mandibles lost its pink hue when i did this, and you can even buff to a slight sheen with a soft cloth if you need to...

    Killer paintjob dude! Nice details too. Did you intentionally do the signs like that? Nice personal touch!

    Cheers mate

    someone noticed
    No, not intentional, just a mistake. The symbols on the right ear are upside down (by the time i noticed it was too late). The white U symbol also is too long (it was a pre fab sticker that i had modified heavily already and could do nothing further with without ruining it)

    cheers for all the kind words though guys

    And TF, thanks for supplying me with, IMO, one of the best lids to paint up
