Weltenraum Nahkampf Gefechtseinheit Ausf. B 'Ollie' - part V Lucky 13

Added some decals to the beastie, numbers from a grosserhund kit, the rest from a 1/32 revell volksjager and assorted 1/48 german planes.
The orange bit at the front is meant to break up the rather boring main body. I also changed the graytones of some parts with some filters, but after weathering this might not be visible anymore.
It just needs some more warning decals and it is ready for weathering.

Weltenraum Nahkampf Gefechtseinheit Ausf. B 'Ollie' - part IV PAINT!

I was lucky enough to get a workshop of lacquer painting from the master in NYC, Jsan from http://jsan9.blogspot.com/.

So afterwards I grabbed the thinner and foul smelling laquers and just went at it! 

It's way different from acrylics, and the thinner reacts with the undercoat, creating weird patterns and stuff. I wasn't able to get the smooth finish I went for, but I love the unexpected texture and mottling so can't complain really.

First layers

And a day later some more

It's drying now from addin ID marks, crappy pictures, but else I'll forget entirely.
Went for orange stripes and might add something more.
Numbers or letters a-coming to.
