Hi guys,
This is my 9 yr old sons entry into the Junior category. I bought it for him last year, pretty sure it's one of the new molds, the detail looks nice and crisp.



Have to be totally hands off with this one, but he'll be getting plenty of advice along the way ;D

Jake started his build today.



Tried some preshading... Could use some more practice :)



Panel lines and rivets are really nice, perhaps a little out of scale ? Bit nice anyway.

Hi guys, update from Jake.

Painted some of the interior detail and got the instrument decal placed.



Figure painting 1 Oh 1, with a little advice from sis :)


Not too bad ;D


Closed up and ready to go !



Not sure of the final scheme yet, thanks for looking :)
