Beautiful work as ever. Thanks for tip on the pencil - I’ve been wondering how to bring out some panel lines/surface detail on a white prototype I’m building. That looks like it will Work much better than my usual oils pin wash on this occasion.

Thanks!

Ps is there anything I need to be aware of in doing it?

It's a very simple process, just don't press to hard (as it might damage the paint layer), and keep the pencil sharp (I usually make a bevel just swiping it on a piece of scrap paper). I like to apply it over a satin surface, but it also works over flat (but avoid gloss surface as it will not "grab" the graphite. Over white, be very gentle, just leaving an impression of a panel line (at least I prefer it that way).
I hope it helps you!

Cheers

It's coming along nicely.  Good idea on the panel lines.
And I love your high-tech clamps.   Just like I use.

"I hope you like it."

Yes, I do.  Nicely done, great paint job.  And interesting markings too.
