I have tried to understate the ugliness to some degree by replacing the servitor manned turret with something a little more appropriate. I have also decided to leave the anterior air vent off. The main issue I have with this model is it looks too squat. Hopefully, by removing some of the details that make this craft tall it should look longer overall. Only time will tell.
Next up is the weathering stage, yippee :(
The colours have been washed out. I assure you they are a great deal redder and highlighted.
