Take some outside shots so we can get a better idea. That blue looks nice but I could get a better idea with some sunlight hit it.

Nice, what color is it?
When cutting holes in the body, radius the corners for stress relief. The body will tend to crack at sharp corners.

Just a little advice...

trim all your holes and everything in the body before you paint
makes everything much easier MHO

I like the color, but it is a bit boring. Just a one-color wonder. Your next one should have a design. But I do like the color and you did a good job painting.
