    Thanks guys! I appreciate the kind words! I need to pace myself a little better though. I thought this kit would keep me occupied for a while but I blew through it pretty fast. What do you guys do with all of the kits you build? Do you have a display case in your homes? Do you sell them? Display them at hobby shops or museums? I'm already thinking about my next build!

    Yes. Very nice indeed. Love the panel line accents. They really give the airplane definition against a heavy white background.

    Thank you guys! Because of the potential "featurelessness" of the white, I concentrated on applying the white irregularly and getting good panel line contrast using pastel washes. The washes were also helpful in dirtying up the decals slightly.

    Please let me know if the pictures stop showing... I keep limiting out on Photobucket bandwidth! I may have to create a 2nd account.
