Been working a bit on my Imperial Lightning test model tonight. Have a look.
I used Catachan Green on the nose and Wazdakka red on the red bits. Flash Guys yellow on the stripes too.
The cockpit was done just black with a gloss. The main reason for this is, in my opinion most cockpits look like a glossy black from a distance anyway (see below).
This is also my source of inspiration too. A Tuskegee P51 Mustang.
Next I will add some insignia, seal, pin wash and weather.
