Looks great Art. Can't wait for more.
A tip if I may?
When working with oils use a piece of cardboard as a pallet. A piece of the kits box lid is superb for this. Put the oil paint on the unprinted side and the cardboard absorbs the linseed oil. The finished, or printed side keeps the linseed oil from soaking all the way through and making a mess beneath. Armor modellers do this all the time to speed up drying.
How's this kit look?
Great minds think alike! I used 3X5 file cards as my palette. As for the kit, other than some noticeable mold misalignment (Revell really needs to work on this issue!) the kit is so very nice.
