I found this kit at the local hobby shop. The box was battered, beat up, open, and the decals where moldy. The price, $14.95 tax included. Something just screamed cool! This is what I came up with. I call it my ugly duckling. Please comment....good or bad. :)

I don't think I've seen one of these kits painted white before, but it obviously works! Great job.

I wish MPC had put this kind of effort into all their kits.

It was actually an MPC kit originally. One of their better ones, IMNSHO.
