HI ,its one to my next model. Fantastic Plastic Colonial One. This model a about 10" long when done,and is roto cast so i could be lit if one wanted to do that , which would be bad doing the main body but the head piece would be difficult to do so that's why I'm skipping lighting this one. How ever any ideas on what to do with the windows as far as making them look lit would be appreciated.
BTW :the 1st thing I noticed about this kit is that the windows along the front edges are round and not square so that's the 1st thing that I'm fixing.
Here's some pictures of what you get.

The next thing that i fixed was the cockpit windows on the front nose, it was to small and the wrong shape so i fixed it. I also scribed some more panel lines in it.

OK got some progress today. I glued the bridge onto the body And the engines to the back and scribed some panel lines. Had to use quite a bit of filler seeing that the bridge don't fit like i wanted it to but i think when I'm done it will look pretty good.

Well I got the main body done and ready for prime & paint. Trying to put as much detail in as possible seeing that the cast wasn't the best ,I also scribed in the panel lines as well.

Did a lot of painting on this today,don't know if I'm really happy with it, not looking as good as i had hoped for well see what it looks like when I'm finish. Kind of struggle with painting the gold pin strip (on such a small model), And the window color but i think what i have is what its going to end up being my with a little clean up.

Well its all in one piece and the paint is 98% done. A little touch up and a little weathering and it will be good to go.
