Painting the baby spacecraft: Progress shots

After beating the crap out of myself, in a good way, at the gym, I spent today painting the four little Clusters that I picked up from the workshop this week.

In brief: 4 layers of gesso primer - the resin they're made out of is thirsty. 1 thin yellow wash. 3 texturizing layers with sucessive addition of brown. 1 thin dark brown wash. 1 coat metallic gold paint.

Tomorrow: Solar panels, engine and top details.
