Fighter 1 and two Pirate craft, the Harpy, piloted by Norma, and Siren, flown by several unfortunate pilots, have been going through the build process pretty much in lockstep. Here's Fighter 1, assembled & base-color painted.

July, 2006 - Assembly took place several years ago, with occasional bits of work over the last few years. Then the Crusher Joe movie & OVAs came out on DVD. The sheer coolness spurred me to get going and finish these.

Fighter One's main colors are Model Master enamels Insignia White, Ford Engine Light Blue, and Duck Egg Blue.

Here they are masked for canopy painting and after canopy painting. I brushed Micro Mask around the canopies and then shielded the rest of the model with taped-on paper towel bits.

The canopy paint is a base coat of Acryl pearl with a Tamiya transparent red overcoat.

I used Model Master Metallizer Gun Metal for the engines, flat black or gull gray for details & shading, and mixed an orange color from insignia red and insignia yellow for the gunports.

The decals were settled in place using Micro Sol.
