Roth's Rotar

Calling it done! Simple maybe, but not an easy one. Tricky multi-color paint scheme. Kit came without decals, made those myself with inkjet decal paper. Bubble top and fans were un-useable, so I substituted a Plastruct dome and made the fans from plastic stock.

As is often the case, the photos show most of the imperfections . . .
