Been working on this for over a year now but i'm finally ready to call it done. Want to thank everyone that's helped me out with the technical aspects of this build. I had to ask lots of questions and everyone was always happy to help me out. You may remember when I first posted it but it's a mix of the Dragon G and late H kits with lots of aftermarket parts from griffon, orange, friul, etc.... used echelon decals for the markings.
Before primer....





Base coat....




Camo.... pattern typical of the 4th... it's kinda ugly but i dig it....




Finished product....












Again, thanks for eveyone's input, love to hear your opinions.

As some have said, my pics are too dark because i didn't set the white balance properly. Here suppose i should take new ones but it's such a pain. sorry here's one to give you a little better idea of the colors.

Yellowish hue...

You should correct this with photo editing software or take new pics, the current ones really don't do justice to such a magnificent model.

Cheers,

but pics are to dark .Anyway you do a great job on the model .I like the damage on the fender with Boschlight that look very realistic .The camostripes are very unusual but look very nice .You could be proud of your work and it was worth all the time you invested .
