Really excellent work, especially on the subtle shading on the tilt. :clapping:

I had one of these in my stash and was Inspired to make it after seeing spitfire1677's WIP build. I have used his method for the Indicators and the mirrors. Thanks Chris. :thumb:

This is my first real effort at weathering as well. I used some of the Tamiya weathering master range. I am quite happy with the result but need more practise.

I think I had more fun doing this little kit than I did making the 1/400 Titanic, not so much pressure I guess.

Here is my attempt went for the flat Dark Green No.30.
Attempted a little weathering to darken/lighten the curtain and roof parts. (sorry not the best photos)
