Painting the baby spacecraft: Completion

I finished painting the baby Cluster spacecraft!

In brief: 2 coats black ink on the engines. 3 thin washes royal blue on the solar panels, followed by 1 wash of black ink, 1 wash light blue, 1 wash royal blue and dry-brushing with white. Metallic silver on the gaps between panels. Top details received additional coats of metallic gold.

For those who might be interested in such things, I include the main playlist for this effort behind the cut. I tend to listen to the same set of songs on repeat while I'm painting.

...I just realized that this list doesn't look very cheerful even if you don't know the songs. I swear, I was having a great time.
