Here is my altest build. Roden has a great offering if you are looking for a less complicated and cheaper alternative to the WNW kit. This is straight out of the box except the seatbelts made from masking tape and spare photo etch. Paint is a little rough because the silver was acrylic base and then I applied decals and oversprayed a flat enamel. This bubbled and wrecked the black paint and decals! I did my best to correct them and overpaint the decals.

What mix did you use for the "silbergrau"?

How do YOU do your turnbuckles? They look sweet.

Great job as usual. I like those Roden kits too.

Dan, they are just Elmers white glue applied after rigged. It takes a pretty big glob because it shrinks when drying. then just overpainted with testors brass enamel.
