I had been putting off doing the fiddly bits for a while.. I took a few more breathless moments affixing aerial and rotating beacon and scratching up some ventral strakes. Made up some extra decals I had forgotten in the first print : the escape / door outlines and the "WZ"s on the gear door and eyebrow positions, a bugger for picking up finger marks this,

Its hard to get the color, and shine just right in that small a scale. Great Job.

Wally... Wally...

I can't believe it! That is just beautiful!

The only thing I can see wrong with it is.... It's not 1/48th.... I think you missed perfection by about .00001%

... Stunning!

On the seventh day while God rested, we overran his perimeter, stole the globe, and we've been running the whole show ever since.
