Default Hobby King Gulfstream G-500

Hi Scale fans,Start is new Gulfstream, I did the mod., for the the windows by reducing a bit in size , look more scale like, I use sheet of plastic and paint one side with nit-shades, I cut the windows plastic a bit over size ,on one sideI apply a white plastic film, and silicon from the inside of the fuselage, easy no mess and easy with plenty of space to work , this made a big difference on the first look. Cheers
