Painting ol’ Toilet Paper Head’s ship was pretty fun and easy to do. After cleaning the model up, I primed in black, using Army Painters excellent and thin black primer. Less is always more with primer, better six thin coats than three thick ones.
After priming, I gave the model a light drybrush of Bleached Bone (GW) to see it better.
Then I applied a Bleached Bone and Neutral Grey (Vallejo) mix in a 3:1 ratio.
I followed that up with a thin coat of pure Bleached Bone.
I brought up areas of the Bleached Bone with White paints, then used Brown & Black Inks in the crevasses and chestnut ink for some wear effects on the model.
Blood Red (GW) was used to paint the red details on the engine and cockpit.
I decided to add some red racing stripes to balance the model out.
Lastly, I looked over the model and touched up any areas I thought needed attention.
That was it. The main thing is to keep your lines straight, that’s what makes this model with such a simple paint scheme stand out.
