I've masked off the X wing and sprayed it with a few fine coats of Tamiya insignia white primer

All sat in my mock up paint booth ready to be painted

After the primer has been applied

I'm going to give the primer a few days to set before I masked off various areas to apply the various colours.

You need to wait no longer Morris,

Finally found the time to masked up the X-wing and I applied a grey base to where the red needs to be

ImageIMG_3937 by Jess Lee, on Flickr

Then I sprayed several layers with a red over coat and then I removed the masking tape

ImageIMG_3938 by Jess Lee, on Flickr

I'm going to leave the paint to dry overnight before I masked off the area for the grey colour. I will deface some of the paint to make it look like wear and tear and battle damage.

Thanks Morris,

I've spent all morning masking up the X-wing for the grey, quiet a fair bit and some fiddly bits too.

I sprayed the grey this afternoon and had to re-masked off the darker grey and gave the rest of the grey a few fine mist of white to lighten the grey in some areas. I've just pulled off the masking tape and it look really good. There is a couple of over spray in places, but I will tidy them up another day. The cock pit canopy was also prayed too.

There still is more to paint

I opened up the wings to paint the inside of the wings

ImageIMG_4001 by Jess Lee, on Flickr

ImageIMG_4003 by Jess Lee, on Flickr

There are still odds and ends to paint for the under carriage

ImageIMG_4034 by Jess Lee, on Flickr

as well as R2 and Luke figures

ImageIMG_4037 by Jess Lee, on Flickr

The under carriage parts painted to match underneath the X-wing and weathered

ImageIMG_4035 by Jess Lee, on Flickr

R2 head being painted, there are two of these, one to sit on the back of the X-wing and the other for the figurine

ImageIMG_4002 by Jess Lee, on Flickr

Painting the figurines...

ImageIMG_4038 by Jess Lee, on Flickr

...these are stood upon a vitamin lid which I'm turning into a mini Dagobah diorama, I also applied the transfers to Luke helmet using Micro Set And Sol, other than that, everything else is painted by hand, most of which is very tiny details

ImageIMG_4044 by Jess Lee, on Flickr

I filled the vitamin lid with some Das clay

ImageIMG_4052 by Jess Lee, on Flickr

R2 has been weathered and dirtied up, I've added a small twig for a branch to the base
