I recommend you to paint the surface with a layer of nitrocellulose lacquer to seal the paper surface first, before applying the acrylic color or primer. It'll make the surface waterproof and it will take the diluted acrylic well.

By the way, I built an X-wing with (I believe) this same model as a basis, so if you want some inspiration, here's the old thread of mine X-wing (picture links expired over time, but they are still on photobucket https://s266.photobucket.com/user/im.../X-wing?page=1)


The image is fine, though you may use a smaller size version, this article explains how: https://thomas.vanhoutte.be/miniblog...umbnail-trick/


Good luck!
