Thanks for the comments and thanks for the link to your pics, Rudy. Very nice quality shots.
Here are a few more pics, as requested:
The paint was Tamiya TS-54 (light blue) and I think the dark blue was TS-56, but this looked flat on the sides. It really needs some horizontal surfaces to show off the mica, which is why I then chose to give it a dusting of blue glitter spray, before copious clearcoating.
