   To paint the hull panels, the entire model was painted with Model Master Silver spray-paint. Random panels were hand-painted on with Tamiya Gunmetal and Blue acrylic. Using a mini spray gun, the model was then covered with a mix of Tamiya White, Clear and Clear Blue to give a pearlescent effect. The Main Sensor was airbrushed with Tamiya Light Blue and White.
