That Hammerhead looks great! I like how you did the weathering on the front of the Railgun. How did you do that?!

The colour scheme is very nice too.

I have a chisel blender (a wide, flat brush) that I use for Drydrushing and stippling. I used that to "dab" on dry layers of black. Its sort of a brybrush where I dot the color on instead of brushing it.

To me, the blue part looks slightly un-finished (should cover more of the model IMO). but it doesnt look bad by any standard...

My original concept was to have the entire thruster portion painted black...to make it look like its separate from the hull...but I agree with you. I'm not 100% happy with how this turned out. I may just paint the engines blue and I'm also considering ditching the orange section on the hull. I liked the way the peeling paint effect came out, but again, I'm not in love with it.
