Absolutely outstanding!

Loving the finish on the black surfaces. How did you paint those?

Thank you, Jim :)

I didn’t use any panel-liners on the complete model.

This is how I painted the black undersides: After priming with Gunze 1200 and sanding with 8000 grid sanding-cloth I preshaded all the panel-lines with Tamiya flat black. After this, AK Real Color RAF Night was applied thinned 50:50 with Mr. Color Leveling Thinner and my Infinity Airbrush with the  0.2mm nozzle at 2 bar pressure. Then I applied a lightened RAF Night with a thinning-ratio of 30:70 (color:thinner). Finally the original RAF night was applied with a thinning-ratio of 20:80 to blend in the lightened color. 
I used the same method also for the upper-sides and preshaded twice (over the brown color before painting the green).
