Well, that certainly turned out adequately and I hope you're satisfied with the results. Thanks for posting.

By the way, what color did you end up painting the superstructure?

Sorry for late response to your question Russ, (I'll stand in the corner if you want!), it was sprayed Humbrol Satin Black.



I've been in the corner for a while and it's a mess. I'll have to clean it up before anyone else can stand in it.

Apparently, then, you decided to forget about that annoying idea of replacing black paint with medium-dark gray to "make the model the right color in room lighting". What a relief. Your model looks perfect.



Lovely stuff - excellent styrene engineering - and you stuck with it !!  -HUMBROL RULES-
Whats next on the big scale scene ?
