Great work there :). Lucky man this has only 2 engines. On average star wars vehicle, you need to do same things fourtimes and more :fight::).

Thanx:),
After some time I will add some photos. I decided that the whole model I will dye. On the hull I used putty and grinded it (several times), then I sprayed the basic color. I'll spray on it the upper color, and then comes the patina.
My improvements:A fully sprayed hull and a reworked bottom of the bike.
