Primed. Also applied black on the areas I want to have shadows, will do a bit of colour modulation alongside with traditional pre-shading.

The tracks were painted with Rust color then drybrushed with silver then dark silver. I was a bit sloppy on this step because it wont be that obvious after the application of pastel for dust effects.

After some trial and error, finally I found the right color. Cant believe I should throw Bright Green into the mix to get it right. I just love mixing my own paints.

Lots of build going on. This one is for the Aviation GB (Plazone). This is only my 2nd aircraft build so Im still not quite out of the dark yet. Still reading and researching for references on how to build AC model kits. Since its not a very strict GB, I plan to play a bit on the scheme but will use the Aggressor variation as a guide but probably wont that historically correct. So to avid aircraft modelers out there, apologies in advance. :) 

Here's the cockpit area, not to shabby, I only used the decals provided for the details but Im not that satisfied so maybe I'll still do some retouches or oil paintings just to enhance the look a little bit more.

As expected its tail-heavy, So just put a lead weight inside the nose, and problem solved!

For the canopy, I'll just polish it with Tamiya Compund. A must have for AC builds

Here's the bird after a mock assembly, still need to glue most parts and for sure a lot of putty-ing to follow.

MG Gouf build interrupted by another commission project. I guess I need to prioritize this one first. So far so good, no fitting problems and minimal sealing needed. The client is still thinking for a custom scheme, I just hope its good. *cross fingers*
