Now Thunderbird 3 was finished I moved onto the main model, Thunderbird 5. The base for Thunderbird 5 is, oddly, a moonscape which whilst odd is nice and easy to paint. I did this by priming using Vallejo primer and base coating with Eshin Grey. I used Dark Tone ink to add contrast to the craters. This was followed by lighter shades of grey all the way to Administratum Grey. The craters now really pop out!
