I wouldn't worry too much on the paint deco... It's hard to say for sure that it'll come out all squeaky clean like that in the end, but if it does, it's got a slick sculpt for battle damage customizing I think. I think the final product may be a bit prettier.
That said, I'm shocked how many dislike it... It's one of the most innovative ship designs of the EU, so I'm really excited for it. This was a #1 wish for vehicles for me, right up there with a scale TIE Defender or TIE "Avenger" Advanced. The V-19 was definitely on my short list, and Hasbro appears to deliver perfect scale... The comic adaptation of it gives it more "life" so I like that actually. Nice panel lines on it, lots of detail. I'm stoked to get at least 3 of these right now, so long as the wings fold as they should, which I'd be shocked (and highly disappointed) if they didn't. Even if they didn't, I'd probably still get one and make it so they could.
