Thanks. The white underside is Tamiya XF-2. The top blues are Gunze H56 Intermediate Blue, H54 Navy Blue and H55 Midnight Blue.

Hi, liking the colours - I've got Tamiya XF sea blue for the dark and Intermediate for the ... well.. intermediate blue parts. I've found your post interesting as I've just started the build and I'm wondering at what stage to prime and paint parts - and you've done well leaving it till it's mostly together so I'll take that as a guide!

I guess you'll be adding stores and maybe undercarriage afterwards - looking forward to seeing results.
