MiG Alley USN/USMC Basecoat

Basecoat and Black Ink / Future Wash

Citadel Night World Blue Basecoat

I painted the blue basecoat on the Tumbling Dice 1/600th USN/USMC aircraft today, initially using Vallejo Dark Prussia Blue but switching to a very, very old pot of Citadel Night World Blue, as the first option ended up way too purple. I then gave the whole lot a wash in a 25:75 mix of Black India Ink and Future, both to seal the basecoat and to add some definition to the panel lines. They now need to dry off completely before I can start on the canopies and colourful white, red and yellow details.
