SHAKARA! - starting the painting

I've turned to the co-creator of this fella, artist Henry Flint, as to jst what colours he'd see things being if the strip was in colour - if you've not read it (and why not?) its all black and white except for Shakara's red eyes.
Henry's been great and given me a breakdown on just how he see's things.
So here's the start: all metal areas to be battleship grey with rust and oil in places. So i've primed in black then lightly sprayed grey primer for the basecoat.
Next step is to hand paint all the detail around the eyes to match it.

It's something else this model, great work so far.
