You could turn it to a black and white version of the colour. That will keep the luminosity and should look quite interesting when it is displayed together with the other ships. I would make two versions, one with the blue hue and one b/w. ;)

Betweenthe drying proces I started to cut the fuselage and the front / rear dome. At the end of the day all pieces are glued.

And here is todays update. The Tie striker is a two seater a pilot and a bomber so I have to build two interiors. Below the parts needed for both. And they are not the same.20220710_185418.jpg20220710_185403.jpg
After a few hours I finished both.
