Absolutely, that what it is there for. If you have any questions anytime, let me know.
I am trying to keep the mods in line with the parts received and I will be updating it again very soon.

I have painted the torpedo rack. The supplied rack was crying out to be painted and using the picture in the back of issue 75 as reference, I started dismantling the parts ready for priming. I painted all the parts with an aluminium paint. The rack was then painted with a yellow ochre and when it was dry to the touch, I rubbed areas with a cotton bud to give the appearance as worn paint exposing the aluminium beneath. The torpedo’s were masked off in areas and painted with a grey white, highlighted with a green blue and yellow. The arrows were made up in a word document using the shapes tool and then scaled down. These were then printed on decal paper. The warheads were then polished with steel pigment.
The images below show the before and after pictures.

More soon

Mark

Mark Warren..I loathe you!!! I'm cursing at you every time you post your modifications to this model...AARRRGGGHHHH!

Seriously tho, Thank you for the most excellent ideas for weathering and detailing this model (I won't talk about the Falcon...which I'm still building...because of you!). I used your sponge technique to chip my model and although I didn't use the same paints, I got a most excellent result. I also couldn't find that particular type of sponge - I used scotch brite...

Oh, I had to disassemble my torpedo rack!!! Yeah..I painted it too...

Thanks for the wonderful Ideas!!!
