I’ll use Alclad Ultra-Gloss to seal in the base painting prior to weathering.
Weathering starts with UMP’s Ultimate Weathering Wash. I like the product as there is no order and being water based after about 20-30 minutes, I use cotton buds dipped in water to take the excess off.
At this point, the three main assemblies are ready to be put together.
The base was primed and painted with Tamiya XF82 Ocean Gray 2 (RAF)
