This is coming along well. Taking your time and building slow is definitely better in my opinion. You really do excel at masking. Great work!

I do love the colors you are choosing for this build it gives it kinda a real/animated look if that makes any sense

That's what I'm trying to go for, glad others can see it ...

Hello again everyone!

Another update.

Besides places where the green metal is supposed to be, painting is now DONE!

I masked off the back of the nacelles and sprayed Interior Blue/Green and then hand painted the end details the
darker shade of the same color.



You can also see where I painted Testors Chrome Silver Enamel on the upper chiller grills. Turned out nice. Let's hope
green colored Future over it looks even nicer. Those pieces will be my testbed, if it doesn't pan out, I'll strip them and paint all
the metallic areas just chrome silver.

I also painted the ribbed detail on the neck the darker color. Those were masked then painted by hand.



The lip underneath the bridge dome had to be painted twice. First some white then orange. Masking would have been a
pain so I just freehanded it. The nice thing about a gloss coat underneath is you can rub off wiggles in the paint line with a
wet toothpick. Not perfect but good enough since it will be a little tough to see anyway.



By mid-week I should be able to put some Future over everything.

I'll be so happy ...


Will be a big relief to have a protective coat. Getting to the point of diminishing returns here.

Hopefully next weekend will be the decals!

Cheers,
Spencer

Looking great.

Thanks!


Some more assembly.

I glued in the triangular intakes. Fit still isn't great, even with my whittling. But, you work with what you got.
Also snapped on the detail pieces underneath the nacelles and put the bridge dome in place. Pretty tight
squeeze there, but it's in.



FOCUS you darned camera! The top hat is only dry fit.
