The secret word for the day, Zappa fans is TIDDYSPRINKLES
Got my act together today and de-fuzzed all of the Ravenwing I currently have pending - the January and (possibly, depending on the codex) February goals. I also made sure to check all of the bolter barrels, drill out the ones I missed and of course drill out the tailpipes. Thanks Nick!
I put away the current projects and all of their associated paints and arranged most of the paints I'll need over the next couple of weeks. Maybe even months - when I buy the heavy speeder and flyers I may just carry on with the paint scheme since it'll be fresh in my head. Or I may do something else if I feel my mental hinges bending.

As I said before they're basecoated through an airbrush with Tamiya's NATO black. Over the basecoat I'll start doing the metals and reds, then re-touching the black where there are oops. There are always oops. At this time I can't for the LIFE of me remember if I did the edge highlighting before or after the wash. I will have to go to the store and bring home some bikes for reference. I keep my Ravenwing in a locked display case at my FLGS. Pictures coming as they're ready for and after the wash so you can see how the Badab Black works going through an airbrush. I may have to change that out given that Badab Black is NLA, I don't have a lot of it and I haven't tried Nuln Oil yet - I don't know how it behaves when thinned 50% through an airbrush.
