I can finally promise some progress with this in the near future.

I have just ordered the parts for the most important build in this project: a new 200cm * 50 cm * 200cm display cabinet for this and other "big" stuff.

Corrections made and the first layer of tamiya silver has been applied. I wanted the riveting to stand out more as it begun to dissapear after a few coats of primer. I did so with the mr hobby rescribig tool which is also good for riveting only to find out after more research that it was not too much visible on the missile but decided to leave it as it is. Actually the one I am kitting now (Beijing museum piece) is propably an mockup as it only resembles the SS-2 in outline lacking many distinctive details - a thing that I noticed after more research.

Decals applied with the help of micro sol and set. Lost the pitot during painting so needed to exchange it for some spare I had left over. As I am doing the museum example which is in pristine condition no weathering or washes will be applied. The letters on the missile mean Dongfeng-1.

Calling it done. Satisfied by the result although did some mistakes. Basically the kit is no Dongfeng-1, at least not the museum example, but I would be the opinion that the museum example is a mock up. For sure it is an SS-2 SIBLING (R-2) missile which the Dongfeng-1 was based on.

Nice finish. The rocket itself looks like a very basic kit (maybe a subtle wash would help?), but I like the stand colour and drybrushing the most 👍

Thank you Łukasz. I didnt do a wash as the example from the museum is in pristine condition and it would make the riveting stand even more out. - the kit one is overdone and my reconstruction after sanding didnt help it either. I would remove the riveting completely next time if I would do this kit one more time only leaving it partially on the fins. The rocket consisted of around 10 parts on the other side the stand was over 30 parts so pretty basic but i don't think there are many other ways to do it as the V-2 from Special Armour has not many more parts than this one.
