The title says it all! Glad to have this one on the shelf at last. It's the ID vacuform 1/48 kit, which is basically just the airframe. The full build can be seen in the thread below.

I'll freely admit that the model looks better in the pics than on the table, but I think I accomplished my basic goals, so I'm happy! Comments, questions, and critiques welcome!

 

Now on to some MUCH simpler builds....... :smiley17:

THAT is one nice ORION!!! Fantastic job, Gil.

 

You built an entire aircraft and I'm still wallowing on putting a new nose on a Voodoo. I applaud your persistance.

 

This gives me incentive to finish my build now.

Gil... That is one fine looking Project..I describe Vacforms as Projects because I envy those who have the skills to accomplish them. You have accomplished with a flourish..VERY NICE :smiley4:

Someday I'll actually finish one of those vacu kits. Thus far I've been beaten twice. I salute you Gil for sticking to it and producing a very fine model. Thanks also for taking us along through the build.
