    Well, for starters, DON&#39;T use the sealent on the clear plastic. It turns foggy. Past that, take a super fine brush, choose your colour, and go over once, then mix the ink of choice (Usually the same colour ink) into it, repeat, then go back to the flat coat. Really complicated, but lovely when finished.
    If a tree falls in the forest, and it lands on a mime, does anyone care?

    When you mount the canopy you have to use a water based glue like Elmers white glue here in the US or PVA glue for those over seas. It will not attack the plastic.
    Other than that try painting the struts in the canopy white first then paint in your base color, that should brighten it up a bunch.

    Basically if you treat it like the green rods that the Necrons have you&#39;ll do fine.
    It&#39;s not Raymond Luxury Yacht, It&#39;s pronounced throat wobbler mangrove.
