A-wings are one of my favorite ships from Star Wars. In the X-wing Miniatures game, there are two paint schemes for the A-wing: red and blue. A while back I painted up a green-themed A-wing. Last week I finished up a yellow-themed one. I really weathered this one up, too – maybe too much so. Meh. I guess it’s just seen a lot of action.
Working with yellow in my previous “Camaro A-wing” was a real pain, but I think I got the hang of painting yellow properly now. As advised by others, I painted bright white the areas I eventually wanted to paint yellow. The yellow paint worked really well when applied over top the white.
