Started work on this a couple of weeks ago. So far i have primed the pack white which will serve as a base colour for when i start layering, replaced the cross head fixings with slotted screws, fitted the aluminium beacon and stabalizer and painted and fitted the greeblies. The greeblie to the left in the recess has been modified to resemble reference pictures and the push button on the left underside has been replaced with a working button to operate a white LED in the beacon. First colour has been added to the rocket which i will paint next...
