Star Wars Armada: Painting the Jumpmaster 5000

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.

20151006_160516I decided to add some red racing stripes to balance the model out.
