    Great work!

    But...

    1. Needs red and silver on the wings to break up the blue.

    2. Looks a little too shiny. Doesn't have that Classics flat finish.

    Otherwise, SWEEEET!

    You may want to try Krylon Matte finish. Even over Krylon Fusion gloss paints it gives a durable flat finish. (I sound like a commercial..LOL) Nice though.

    looks good, but like others have said, I would go with a more matte finish.

    It will help to bring out the details like the panel lines better.

    it won't wreck your canopy, but it will dull it. if you want it to stay shiny (I would as its supposed to represent glass) then remove it first. honestly I put my clearcoats on before I reassemble my figures... it give it tighter joints, and I think better protection as well.

    For your first attempt, it looks good. I do agree that the paint looks thick though. Also, cut back on your image tags when posting pics. only one set of tags are needed per image.
