    Thanks mate! I agree a vac form canopy would add value to this build but I'm pretty happy the end result!
    Cheers

    First off, just incredible and you're the type of modeler that makes me not even want to try. A question.....is the weathering a bit too dark? Maybe it's the picture or maybe my 1/2 blind eyes. It just seems the panel lines maybe stand out a little too much.

    Again, this is like nit picking the Mona Lisa and I don't know what I'm talking about.

    Thanks mate!

    The weathering seems darker in the photos, but I did a pre-shading in the overall model. I pretty much liked the way it ended.
    I've tried some new (for me at least) techniques in this model and it happened they worked quite fine.

    Cheers

    Well, I told you it's something else. You're obviously too skilled for a simple mistake like that. Great work!
