Sometimes RCU doesn't want to work, that is, it wond show thimbnails or download pics. For me at least, Saturday was one of those days.
From the pictures you've included you already have a pretty good shine on the finish, a great base for color. And if the third picture in the first bunce is any indication, you are something of a "ham" in the picture category
I've been following your build log, along with others on other forums, because I have the kit and before I commit to building I want to understand what I'm up against. Seems the hardest part, bar none, is the hull sheeting. After that depends on the modeler.. Your scale achievements are extraordinary by the way. You have set a mark to work towards.
