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 the Harpy, 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.

Harpy's main color is Revell Color Matt #36 for the overall hull red. I figured I should get some use out of the paint Revell AG included in the Republic Star Destroyer kit.

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 orange overcoat.

Harpy's details done in Insignia white, a British Crimson/Flat black mix for the intakes & thrusters, and Revell Matt#36/Model Master Light Gray FS36495 for the hexagonal panels on the hulls forward of the cockpit. A flat black wash finished the model.
