Right now it is all model master enamels with the exception of the washes those are model master acrylic.

As the guns and their components have been painted and are now drying I decided to work at the other end...

I have seen several other forum where other modelers have said that the engine doesn't fit and required that 4mm be cut out of the pipe on the back end of the engine. as you can see here I did not have that problem and the fit was spot on.

Sounds like some of the other folks who built this thing didn't do their homework before setting the engine into place. lol . Nice job on the fit.

There is a shaft the runs down the middle of the pipe on the end of the engine. If it is not set correctly I could see where it would not go together properly.

Had to strip the silver paint as it didn't stick to the model. Worst case of mold release contamination I have ever seen. Will have to wash it down before I repaint it.

It's almost got that weathered look on it as it sits. I figure you've already washed the parts down already once?
