    Aw Joe, good to see you make stuff yourself. Looking good but not your usual work, great to follow this build. Even your detailing is pristine.

    Hi Joe

    see that you've been bitten by the super detailing bug....it's another great experience in scale modelling...hope you'll enjoy it just as much.

    Meanwhile, great job already...keep at it and keep posting.

    No, it will be in overall green with metal undersurfaces. One in natural metals is more than enough for now!!
