I've been meaning to post pick for weeks now but haven't had time.  I didn't weather her, debating if I should though.......

Here is the build thread.

She's a beauty Ron. That NMF is super smooth and flawless.

 

I'm afraid I'm going to disagree with Shaka and vote for some light weathering. Not much but enough to avoid that die-cast, toy-like appearance. As a desk top model she's perfect. As a scale replica of a real aircraft, she's less so. :innocent:

 

Whatever you choose to do there's no denying that is a splendid model.

Beautiful Ron!!

 

Like the variations in the metal.  :thumbsup:

I think she would look great weathered just my two cents worth.

What ever makes you happy.

Gorgeous!  I just love that nice clean perfect Alclad finish.  As some others have noted, she needs a bit of dirt.  Nothing big, but maybe some Tamiya pastels in known areas where the fuselage gets a bit greasy.

 

BTW, That upside down shot directly on the cement blocks makes me queasy.  You are a brave man!
