when i was polishing it i went through the clear on the high edges where it's painted black. i decided right there i was not going to wet sand the black areas in fear of repainting and decaling again. here is a pic that shows the reflection given against a ruler, can ya see the inches? hehe!

Very nice build ... guess spell check hadn't been invented at the time that kit was produced, though!



LOL exactly! I knew this and I wondered if they did it on purpose for some reason? :?

Maybe it's supposed to be pronounced with some kind of Mexican accent.... :wink: Otherwise you'll just have to dig up some old employee from the old days of AMT. Maybe Mark Gustavson knows? Or Jim Keeler?
Cool model! I like the idea of box art models, it's not something you see very much. But I think it's very cool.
