This is the old dragon kit reboxed y Revell which in its day was cutting edge kit. The rivetting are not original to the kit so you did a fine job on them. It adds alot of character to the a/c. Are those decals original to the kit or sourced from else where ? Colour scheme well excuted.

Great work on the interior as well.
I am impressed.

Thank you. Revell no longer sells this model, but is still available from Dragon. Decals come from the company "Peddinghaus-Decals"

That's absolutely stunning!! [smilie=yikes.gif] Wow! The paint job is sublime and the weathering (especially the underside) it just awe-inspiring! [smilie=bow.gif]

Amazing work! Thanks for posting.

Thank you all.
I do what I can with each model, sometimes the effects reward the inserted work.
