    Thanks everyone!

    Yep all hand painted graphics, no decals

    The green ...well its a mix really. the base is rattlecan Rustoluem spruce green, then air brushed over in certain areas with humbrol 78, and then in other areas its the humbrol78 mixed with white. Then multiple layers of weathering, then taking it down with steel wool and 400 grit sand paper etc etc... This was about 4 days of work

    My pic actually washed out the tops of fuel tanks...its not that much silver, its light refecting on it, and also the shape of the silver area on the rocket that i call "the owl" cuz it kinda looks like an owl lol, also got a bit washed out and is also closer to the reference....but im really happy with this one
