Did this build ever reach the finish line? I just spent an enjoyable hour pouring through this entire thread. Exceptional work on a very interesting subject. I have a couple of these kits but haven't built one yet. This WIP will be an excellent resource when the time comes. If this build ever got finished I would love to see a photo or two.
Thanks Trevor. It hasn't progress passed this point. I still need to apply the graphics and few other bits. A friend of mine has done some new decals for this kit and I should be receiving them soon so stay tuned.
