Default First Vehicle Ever (Piranha)

Hey guys, here are some pictures of how my first vehicle that I have ever painted came out, I am rather pleased. I know the wings are on upside down, but if someone knows any methods that I could use to remedy that problem, that would be terrific. Criticism is appreciated ;D:

I rather like it. I think that with the wings upside down it gives it a more sci-fi'ish look to it. Very nice.

Agreed. And great paint job, very crisp. I like how the orange contrasts so well with the blue.

It looks good! The paint looks a bit thick, though, what ratio of Water to Paint do you use? I recommend something like 25:75, but it really depends on the paint itself. Older paints tend to get thicker and need more water.

Its your best paint job so far, but try watering your paints down just a touch more as you use them.

As for the wings, They look cool like that, except that the drones don't fit well. if you cut a lip into that side of the wins so the drones could sit better it would work a lot better.

Paint job is a little thick with wobbly lines, bit not bad for a first attempt.

Not keen on the wings but thats personal preference.
