My first Master Grade and first completed model.

I applied some putty, but a number of seam lines are glaringly obvious.

Painting was primarily done with a Testors single action airbrush.  Touch ups were hand painted.  The colors used were Model Master (acrylic enamels) Insignia Red, Flat Black, Engine Gray, Clear Red, and Testors Gold.

The eye piece has a piece of aluminum foil behind it (simulates a nice glow).  The fins on the engine were modified so that they could move.   Panel lines were done with a 0.3 mechanical pencil.
