Looks great, J C! How did you make the flush exhausts? What colours are you going to use to paint it? I have the old Pegasus 1/72 to do one day...

I made them in CAD. They are not flush by the way, the exhausts on the first flight were protruding. They were made flush a bit later. This is the first flight version and it will be silver.

really nice modell. I like your metal finish. Did you use Alclad for the alu color tones?

Btw, I remember when I was a kid, we had at the library at school ONE nice book for scale modeling and it was usually lent out to others, but I still remember how there was photos of people working with metal foil, and I think I distinctly remember the book saying that you could discolor the foil using egg shells (somehow) to make it look less shiny. I never tried it out.

Very refreshing to see Reginald's baby in its birthday suit, sets it soothingly apart from the legions of standard camo spits.
Big like ! 👍
