Very nice. It's fun to see the Mk 1 with updated livery markings. Can you talk a bit about the finishing techniques used?
I put down a prime coat of Gunship gray then used the salt method for the chipped paint.
The base color is insignia white.
The stripes are painted with insignia red and the canopy is painted with alclad II steel.
I used Winsor & Newton oil color and pastels for the weathering.
The decals came from SSM. With the exception of the decals, this kit is built straight out of the box.

Nice work.

There is nothing to say that ALL TOS vipers HAVE to be gray with red/orange markings other than the fact that the production used TONS of stock footage during the course of the show.

The fact is, that, like in our contemporary military, craft have different markings and paint jobs for their respective squadrons.

TOS Galactica's post attack airwing consisted of "67 fighters in all, 25 of our own" which viually, would had a whole host different markings from all the different squadrons from each Battlestar.

I love seeing Mk. 1's in different paint jobs.
