Working with color
There are new and interesting colors that are only available in a tiny variety of parts. By using a neutral color you can maximize the effectiveness of those parts. Make the structure of your creation with a neutral color, then apply your rare colors as a fairing or as details. Apply colored parts to the neutral chassis shown.
About this creation

By using gray with a drab color like OD green, you can give the impression that the entire vehicle is OD green. This also works with the various "sand" variants of colors.

By using bright or bold fairings over gray you can make an effect of depth due to the gray receding and the brights popping out.

Parting shots:
1. Use gray as a base color to experiment with different colors
2. Make a common chassis for color and shape experimentation.

More pictures are coming as I experiment and find good color combinations.

Pretty good tips, and a really good and detailed MOC as an example. Gray is a favorite building color of mine because of this.

Very effective way to make best use of limited pieces in certain colours; these show how good it can look.

Excellent design tips -- especially for Technic builders, who are often stuck with mostly neutral colors.
