Even though older than me, still a great kit to build, only the decals failed the test of time and a set that looked close enough was found on an Xtradecal sheet.
Finished in Vallejo paints and AK washes:cool:

Thanks for looking in.
Fernando

Excellent work Fernando.I remember having one of these when i was young in the 1970s.Matchbox models and the bright coloured plastic got me interested in models aged 9.
Well done.
Richard.

Hi Fernando, that's an astonishing finish. You wouldn't say this was a 70's kit. Really looks up to date. This really shows what you can achieve with proper paintwork and some weathering. Well done!

Cheers
