Ride of the Valkyrie, Part 6

Just a quick update. With the build complete, it was time to spray the model black. I just had to do one thing first...



And that one thing was using some masking tape to hold the doors in place and to make sure there is no way that the spray can get into the interior. This was an immensely annoying job as the interior is too small to get a hand into so I ended up using bits of sprue to poke the tape into place - it did work though :).



I did suffer a little bit of frosting when the spraying was done, but for a base coat I'm not too annoyed. I only took pics of the Valk and the engines as the weapons really don't look anything special. Sorry for the crap quality of the pics by the way.

So it is now time to paint this bad boy up. I'm thinking of going with my usual vehicle scheme of Orkhide Shade with a camo pattern in Knarloc Green. My main problem is that I don't know if I should do this all over the model or have a light colour, such as grey, for the underneath. Please let me know what you think in either the comments section or the poll that will be on the right (or both). Thanks for reading!

Hey, nice to see her put together and undercoated. What is supposed to be the colour of the sky of the world that the Valk is going to be operating on?

@ The Antipope - you know I've not really thought about that. I'd say the world is an agri world, based on my camo idea, so probably a blue sky similar to our own.

Mmmm, in this case something like Vallejo Sky Grey (akin to real jet fighter underside colour) could be suitable.

I voted green - the sides are gonna be green, the cab is gonna be green, the wings are gonna be green. The only time you're gonna see that pretty sky blue is when you're directly underneath it - and then forget the anti aircraft gun, grab your personal weapon cos there's storm troopers dropping on your head! :oP

since these fill a role very similar to helicopter troop/gunships, and probably operate as close to the ground as possible, I went with an all over colorscheme with my valks, green with dark green and grey cam patterns.
