Nothing too major, was mostly adding black to the engines, adding some bone stones on and to the pilot. I wanted to get all the sanding down but I ran out of steam and headed in to watch Big Bang Theory with the wife. My Son's 1st birthday is this Sunday so I need to finish up a lot for that. After this weekend I'm hoping work stuff will calm down and I'll have a few weeks of no other outside requirements to worry about! So I'm hoping to get a good bit of painting done soon!

On to the part I didn't like, sadly I didn't get pictures as I was too tired and went to bed haha... Since the legs sections are all pretty much glued together you'll have some pretty visable seams. Normally when I glue it together I'll sand the seams before the glue is 100% dry. It's a neat little trick but the sanding dust and small grit will usually fill the seams and blends it all in. Sanding and Filing work the best, if you scrape the seams it probably won't work. I was building a bunch of pieces at the same time so I didn't get to file till dry and I ended up with some massive seams. BOOOOO. As I sprayed the model I really noticed it and it looks pretty terrible IMO so last night I started to Liquid GS the seams up. I broke out the sandpaper and worked on the right leg but was too tired to mess with the rest. So when done I'll have to start the blending over again .. and again .. BOOOO

I also decided to just pose and glue this guy, I was going to Magnetize him but I think it might look a bit off and I want him to look very cool and with a nice paint job. I'll be going with the standard Wraithcannon build as I think it's the most viable. I already planned to pick up another Wraithknight down the road, sucks about the cost but it is a cool kit.
I'm going to order some new Comm Art colors and an Iwata Airbrush for this build and to finish the Revenant. I'd like to get both large models done at the same time.

I went with the SPT instead of going with the egg shaped one I had before.
I didn't want to order the same thing since it broke with no reason. I also liked the shape better.
I like the setup of the control panel better as well and you can actually set the timer up to 8 mins (though I usually run it though twice). It really helped on cleaning the brushes.
It's a little more expensive ($35) then the oval ones but only by $10 or $15 dollars. I've only had it for a few days so we'll see how the long term goes but right now I'm pretty happy with it. It's not too loud and cleans very well. Like I was saying the shape is better then the oval and can hold a good bit. It has a clear top but I don't think that's really a factor.Only thing I wish it had was smaller holds in the tray but I know it's not made for tiny airbrush parts. I'm going to put in a piece of screen I think, otherwise you'll have to pull out the tray and dig out the bits with your figures.

For his color scheme he will most likley be purple and bone. My Craftworlds colors are Blue, Purple and Bone, I don't want everything being blue .. I think it needs a little bit of a mix...
