    I built this a few years ago. I used quite a lot of aftermarket- a photo-etch set for some of the exterior details, Karaya hollow metal gun barrels, Squadron vac-form clear parts, resin wheels, Greif lenses etc. I also scratchbuilt some items (especially in the cockpit), rescribed the whole arframe and made my own decals to depict '2nd Patches', a war-weary shuttle aircraft with several replaced panels, heavy weathering and evidence of engine fires. Hope you like it.
