While the rivets were drying on my first Dora, I opened up another one to see how quick an out of box build could be!! She’s got her gear down, which is a rarity for my builds. She built up REALLY quickly and I think it took maybe a half an hour to do the rivets (using the HGW placement guide). I did have to add a wire antenna and the leftover seatbelts from the first Dora’s PE set…close enough to OOB. I’ll be painting her as the “Red Ace” winter scheme seen in the Blazing Angels video game…

I have a few extra flourishes in mind...mixing up the markings in the refs and the kit included decals a bit. Does a custom scheme still count as OOB?? ;D

I'm not too worried about the definition of OOB, Nick.
Just want to see how this one looks when you get done with her

Nice paint scheme. Are you planning on weathering the red markings? That will look sweet!
