I like the paint color, and congrats, no seams is awesome! The contrasting blue is pretty awesome, is it kinda sparkly?
Yes, both colors Honda car colors, Avignon Blue Metallic and Electron Blue Pearl.
There will also be white pin-striping between the blues

I included a Quarter in the shot as a scale reference.

Gorgeous paint work Bob. What a cool looking ship. I really like the colors.
If It's a model kit, I like it already.

Well, for the clear parts, cockpit in the tail and two wing lounges, lots of masking before painting.
For the 130 other windows, a tiny brush, some black paint, and a caffeine-free day!

I love the look of this kit, and your build up is doing it justice!  Very clean work going on sir.   8)
That model really tied the room together.

wing lounge #1
found the first negative thing about this kit.
the sprue connects to the part right in the middle of not one, but two if the windows
right on the leading edge!



masked and painted, will let it cure for a bit and then remove masks
