I tried it white, so it would be seen from a distance.
Hmmm, too shiny. It needed some heavy weathering, chipping, rustiness and, well, to look like it has seen some world!
Then the wings. Those were tricky. They are sheets of acetate, but they needed 'something' to get attached to the hull. I made a few attempts of building a wire frame, but they all failed. The structure was too heavy for such a small contact surface to be glued. Long story short, I tried BBQ woodsticks. Once painted black they were reasonably hard to see at tabletop distance and the frame was much easier to glue to the main hull, proving to be resistent enough:
I love the whole concept. The design, everything. It screams OldSchool! I'm using it for my RT setting, but I think there are a number of ranges that could seriously benefit from it (I mean, isn't Hasslefree preparing a not-Dune line? )
