Star Wars Armada: Painting Dash Rendar’s YT-2400

While painting Dash Rendar, I used the X-Wing sized model as a guide. After cleaning the model I primed in black using P3 Black primer.P3 Black PrimerAlways use many thin coats, at least five, as opposed to a few thick ones. It takes longer but leaves the tiny model details visible.

The yellow panels were painted with Bronze Fleshtone and then outlined with Brown Ink.

There were some grey panels painted in Neutral Grey, one has a black ink outline. The Brown panels were done with Terracotta Brown. If a mistake is made with an uneven line, in can be painted over with some Deck Tan.

This was a simple and easy paint job that looks great on the table.
