Painting is finished!

One fin is now gloss white, the PNC/payload assembly is metallic silver, and the faux nozzle is the same apple red as the main BT.

Decals next!

Time for some good Scotch. Good night.

Default Done!!

and...............voila!

Sandman's decals have been applied, the faux nozzle is permanently mounted, the model has been brushed with acrylic floor polish, and the model is shiny and dry. I'm not going to do the antennas.

Thanks for watching.

I don't know what I was thinking. This finished model is 27.5" long, so the scale is actually approximately 1:8.5 and NOT 1:13 as I'd previously thought.

Thanks! It was probably the most fun I've had doing a scratch build.
