HI Ian exscuse me I may be wrong on this an not a critisum of your work as im enjoin it but I see you goin to paint it in gloss white ? as I thought it should be done matt white an black ? or is the gloss white for something eles on the rocket ?
chris
Thanks Chris, I find on such a large area, gloss covers better than the Matt white ( It could be just how I spray paint ) then when decals and everything else is done I’ll coat it all in a Matt varnish.

HI Ian she looks fab an you missed a bit of tamyia tape on still at the top an are the engines fitted in as it looks very close to the floor but brilliant
chris
Cheers Chris.
The Tamiya tape is just to keep the bay doors closed. Also the first stage boosters aren’t fitted yet. Still thinking about adding more detail on them.
