Hello!

The model looks good, nice detail! I'd love to see some size reference here, to get an idea how big this baby really is!

Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

I just ordered one of these and it is entirely the OP's fault. Haven't bought a kit in well over a year.

Freekin' WOW!!! This is jaw dropping stuff. How did you tint the exhaust? I usually use Tamiya Smoke (X-19) on my chrome but this has a different look to it.

Me too. I think I have over 10 kits in my stash, and for me being the world's slowest builder, I too have no need for more.

I may have seen tute videos on using Alclad colors to tint exhaust on Alclad's site? By gosh, they are out there somewhere.

Should the OP stop back by for some reason, have you any comment about kit/fit quality? You never said a word. I just started mine and I'm about to pull my hair out joining two cylinder head halves.

I'd just love to hear what you might have to say.

I thought you should have an award just from looking at your build pics. I now think you should have a melal of valor or something.

Thank you very much for you reply. I didn't realize Revell Germany used old molds, thought it was all new stuff. Doh!

I have figured out by seeing a bit of your work that you are a master modeler indeed. I suspect I'm in for a handful.

The box does say skill level 5. I thought that was me, not so sure now. Smile
