Right, the engine has been put on the Ore Carrier and mind has turned to the weathering.
I knew i couldn't go overboard with it, becuase of the scale of the model - this is studio scale, and only time we ever see the ship, it crashes into a passenger liner that looks to be slightly larger.
Its stated in the episode that the passenger liner has 4,000 passengers on board, which makes for two huge craft, so therefore weathering has got to be pretty small.
So i've left it to just some basic dark shading with pastels around edges etc.
That's it almost done - last thing is to put on the two "45"'s at the rear of the tanks, the search continues for a match and may take a while, so i'm resting this project now.
