Small update.
Ermac got a decal. it was small and took nearly 15 minutes to position.

Galor got some paint on the bussards(?). Not sure which one I prefer. The brighter Orange from Humbrol on the left. Or the Orange Rust from Vallejo ModelAir on the right. 2 coats of each but the Vallejo is thin so will need at least 2 more

Also need opinion on the vent colours UK Light Stone on the left or Light Grey Brown on the right

Just made my mind up for the vent and going to go with the light grey brown.

Orange rust for the Bussard/warp/whatever those things are.

Good choice on the light grey brown, btw

I may use the UK light stone as a wash or dry wash in the trenches to highlight the raised detail in there.

Light stone grey is really close to the base color. You may not get a real difference in the results. If you want the trench details to pop, you're better off using a darker (or more neutral) grey

I was going to use the darker light grey brown (right on the CM) on the trenches then drybrush the details on there with UK light stone (left on the CM) May be hard to drybrush as they are both ModelAir which are thinner.

On another note, I may have talked the wife into getting me or at least putting towards an Airbrush. That will make it easier to do the larger surfaces.

Galor got some more love tonight.
Filled the trenches and covered the vents. Trenches may not need the wash. Also put another coat of rust on the bussards.

Just noticed the secondary bridge area needs some more paint as I am wearing it away. No Finish on it just yet.
