I saw this kit in the LHS and just had to pick it up. Up to Bandai standards, this kit is 3" long, about a dozen pieces, with a crazy amount of detail. Molded in white, after assembling, priming, painting, marking and weathering, it is really a great piece of kit.
Primed with Sytylrez white, then testors white and, Vallejo Carmine Red, and three Warhammer washes.

That must have been a hard model to detail. Looks great.

I would never belong to a club that would have a person like me as a member.

For such a small kit you've done a great job with the painting and weathering.

Great Job with the detail work,
my Eyes can't handle a model that small ;)

Thanks for the comments, but the only work that goes into this little ship is the painting. It's about 15 pieces, all incredibly detailed. I used a red sharpie for some of highlights and the Vallejo red for the rest.

A little variety in where to use washes resulted in differing highlights that add to the detail. It took longer to cut and sand the parts than it did to assemble!
