I love it. Excellent idea. I am assuming you used an ink pen for the lines and rivets, right?

Thanks for kind words all you people!
Paint: Tamiya light gun metal + tamiya pearl clear + some light sanding to get rid of excess shine.
Ink pen for lines and rivets.
Lines and rivets are ment to look quickly free hand painted, they are not ment to replicate real ones.
I have had a little piece of red tinted acetate for a long now, been saving it for some gasser model.. but decided to use it for this one instead.
Oh, and here is the only pic I have from interior:

I like the riveted panel paint effect.
I'm going back for another look...
