Constructing the major components
I have finally had some time to build the major components (Yes I fall into the 'Build Paint it as components' school of thought) ready for painting. After having glued the components together however I realised I should have glued the other half of the nose section to the body. This would have allowed me to magentise the weapon mount before painitng, as it is I will have to paint the model to the point I can fit the crew module before glueing on the side panel and fitting the magnet.
The next step will be to paint the interiors on the three hulls at the same time. I will be undercoating the interior with citadael white. Then using my newly aquired airbrush I will be painting the interior a tan base colour.
