Thanks! I was going to post more "in progress" pics, but with my internet problems the aircraft was done before my computer was...

Thanks all for the kind words! This is the first time I did an all over dark blue finish, so I wasn't sure how it would come out. I sprayed it all with the trusty airbrush, then did some fading with a lighter finish of the dark sea blue.

 

Exhaust streaks were done with a variety of grey and white shades, mostly and a tad bit of drybrushing close to the actual exhaust pipes. The trusty superfine sandpaper did the rest.

 

I found the engine on this to be a real pain--I never could quite get the exhaust rings to match up.
