Box stock from Monogram except for the paint and reversing and altering the decals. It was a quick fun build!

Experimenting with the photo lighting, but not sure I like any of them.

Comments welcome!

Nice job, Bill! I did one about a year ago and found it to be a nice little slump buster. I like the paint scheme on yours.

Haven't seen one of those built in ages. Nice job, Bill! If you don't mind me asking, what paint was used for the metallic grey areas?

That's very clean and nice build. Even if this is very simple kit, looks like it can be built very nice. Paint looks good, and the overall cleanless on this one is great-no gaps between parts or anything.
