Thank you Ken for the welcoming!
OK, so here we go, a lot of pictures, hope you don't think it's too much...
The stand, it's a great platform to build your model on.
Started painting the rivets... man this took a long time. Some errors can be seen in closeups, but on the model it looks good.
And a little bit later I was finished...
Engines complete, added some detailing in gold.
Paint drying on the stabilizers.
Something to do when I wait for paint to dry... I don't go for maximum authenticity so I can be creative. :)
We break for nobody! :) Looks massive
Slowly growing. The ring put on was a little tricky... it is a sheet that you fold up, but the fit is very tight, just have to be brave.
And back to masking and painting, there are some huge areas to paint on this model.
