Finished at last.

One of these days I will have no silvering with the decals.

A cute beauty, Stephen :). Well done! I think we all get the silvering at times. To be honest I don't know how to eliminte it. I try to get a good gloss surface and still get it :(

It's the corrugated surface to blame this time. What you need to do is get the decals wet with a setting solution, wait a while until the decal is soft, and then carefully force the decals down into the depressions using something like soft foam.

That has turned out really well. The silvering is a major problem with corrugated or other uneven surfaces.

Very nice build. How did you get the guns to look so realistic? Are they aftermarket? Thank you for sharing.
