Seems you've got a nice 30k Rhino from FW. So you went with a fluffy paint scheme for your 30k DA? I think a few months ago, you weren't sure about it. Nice job, the paintjob is very clean and elegant.

I was on the fence all right... I wanted to do the 30k green but then decided to do the black but add red to it in addition to white. Icons and decals will be white on this guy.

The black and white did did not look good.

Yes, a bit of colour gives charm to it. I like it, it's very elegant.

The fellblade was done about a month ago. All of my 30k stuff will have that same feel. I was just putting it up for reference

I really like the dust effect, it's pretty well done! Perhaps some chipping would have been a nice addition or some drybrushed light around the headlights.

I tried to get those headlights... i tried so much. I just kept going back to black because it never looked right. Seriously, 4 attempts to get it. Maybe I need more practice? Or maybe some day somebody can show me a way to do it and I can try to emulate that process.

point of note: A few weeks ago i dropped my three FW speeders on the concrete outside of my work. They smashed to pieces and I managed to lose some. This is one of those speeders after some TLC to get it all back together.
