I finished up painting and applying the decals to my Stormhawk Interceptor model. The base detailing and painting is done as well. All I have left to do is to apply some weathering to the outside of it and then give it a coat of spray varnish.

The model was base coated with Army Painter Ultramarine Blue colored spray primer.

Overall I think it came out pretty well. The decals came out well, I followed the classic modelers' practice of covering the area with a gloss varnish first, then used Micro Set/Sol over the decal, then another coat of gloss varnish, then finally a coat of matt varnish.

A very nice air asset there. That missile barrage will be brutal.

Nice work. Lots o' firepower on that. An in-game gun run must be devastating to enemy troops.

Thanks for the feedback!

Here's a few photos of the final model with weathering effects applied. I did a simple weathering of Citadel Agrax Earthshade applied over it with a small brush. I used Lahmian Medium mixed with the wash to ensure it would properly collect around the surface rivets and stay in the recesses and seams of the armor surfaces.

My goal was to try to achieve a look of general atmospheric surface film/grunge over the surface like I did with my tank and dreadnoughts. I was thinking of the same kind of look you see on railroad cars and military vehicles that have been outside for a time and exposed to the air and weather.
