You mean like this? :p
Welp, looks like I’m not done after all!
I had certainly planned on adding these, and wasn’t able to decided between actual tape (will the thickness throw the scale off?) or the paints that have very mixed reviews... Months later, just after weathering the engine deck I thought “wait, wasn’t I going to add those? ...Will anyone notice...?”
Do’h!
Anyways, amazing work on your falcon!

Just got notified that my pre-ordered PG Falcon has arrived @ Big Bad Toy Store and is currently undergoing payment processing. :cool:

High praise, sir. High praise. The tape I used was from a cheap roll I bought at Menards. The thickness really isn't noticeable. In fact, the tape itself just kind of disappears into all the rest of the details on the ship. I forget that it's even there until I take a picture using a flash. This is what it looks like under normal lighting. You'd never know they were there (as God and Lorne Peterson intended).

You are in good company then because everyone of us went through the same thing. I looked at Lab's work and numerous others and just thought "no way will I even come close to that!" And I'm still not sure I have, but you just start doing one panel at a time. Stop. Look at it. Look at the reference photos. Squint. Make adjustments. Squint. Then move on to the next panel. Keep things subtle until you have an entire section done and then compare the section to the reference photos and see what needs to be darker or softer or more defined. Then keep going. But just remember, we've all been there. There's five stages of Falcon PG grief: 1) Terror 2) Nightmares 3) Inadequacy 4) Self-loathing and 5) Satisfaction. :p

Lab's was mind blowing. And it took him a month or 2? With spray cans??!? He definitely inspired me, I used his paint recommendations too.

If it's the same stuff I used, you will not notice the thickness. The strips are thin and small enough that they blend in. They certainly don't pop out as something obviously out of scale.
