Good idea. I did it and it looks better. Iím changing paints on the rest of the model. Not sure that is a good idea but Iíve bought powdered pearl pigment and clear lacquer. I think it will be much more iridescent instead of missing with white pearl which just makes a light pearl blue instead of a transparent pearl blue.

Iíll do some testing and decide. Iím not sure it will look bad if the fuselage and engines are more iridescent than the saucer. This thing is going a bit off the rails. But I persist.

So many problems.
