first update, this is of the work on the canopy. This was a second hand purchase from ebay so there's some damage and greenstuff work been done to it, the canopies were already painted and there's no drivers underneath so I cant remove the paint and start again that way, anyway the canopies are basecoated in Aliatoc Blue, followed by 2/3 of the screen from the bottom with a ice blue fade, followed by a 50 : 50 mix of skull white and ice blue for the lower third to give a better transition, I then put a coat of ard coat on the screen parts and once dried painted a coat of maskol on it so that the struts on the canopy can be left un maskol'd and painted in line with the rest of the hull.

second update, I started work on painting the hull and initial highlights but my airbrush seems to be clogged so i finished early and half way through the first highlights, need to finish those then add a final highlight before going in and doing the detail work / washes etc

further updates, i managed to clear the airbrush and crack on with the highlighting layers, 2 extra shots for how it looks with both weapon options and with the maskol taken off the canopies.

I think i'm mostly there with the hull of the prism / spinner now, updates from last pic include a solid line of snot green around the edges of the panels followed by a goblin green highlight in all the corners of the panels and some random gems. Now to focus on the main weapon options.

That's looking awesome! Can you put up some different angles (Front, Sides, Back)?
