Yesterday I weathered the hull with Sepia shade to give the ship a dirty and old look.

Today I Drybrushed the hull to knock back the brown of the Sepia shade and to add a bit of detail to the underside.

My weapons of choice for today's drybrushing. Make-up brushes are perfect for drybrushing larger items, and the margarine lies are used as pallets - I use the time to remove excess paint from the brushes.My weapons of choice for today's drybrushing.

Now I add coloured panels to the top hull to break up the base colour – 5 minutes on the internet gives you 100 versions of how the authentic Falcon was painted – so these inform my placing of the panels and their colours, but I use some artistic license to paint it now I think it will look best.

The paints I used to paint the coloured panels. 2 thin costs of the watered down darker base colour, then overpainted with the lighter shade letting the darker shade show at the edges. Then firebrand aged with the 2 off-white shades.The paints I used to paint the coloured panels. 2 thin costs of the watered down darker base colour, then overpainted with the lighter shade letting the darker shade show at the edges.

The circular heat vents and the deeper recesses are shaded with GW nulin oil to take their colours towards black.The circular heat vents and the deeper recesses are shaded with GW nulin oil to take their colours towards black.
