I need to detail the engines a bit more, the back door, paint and install the canopy (will probably do this once the second is complete and have nearly matching canopies) reshape the guns and install the mounting post assembly. I thought that once again the sculptor of this and other Eldar vehicles had stock in some gem market, otherwise why would so many gems be put on a ship. So I painted a subset of them so that it didn't look like it just had blue zits all over.
For the bottom I was torn with just how much to put into it. I finally decided since this was "fire" I should have it look like it was heating up on reentry. I think its fairly striking, and frankly the only time you will see the bottom of it is when its entering atmo right before it blows you to #$%W. Plus this allowed me to bring it back a little closer to the client's yellow, orange, black theme on some of his other vehicles.
