Now that the model is showing up in stores,I want to share some building observations that I came across during my build.The shells have some parting lines that should be addressed,mainly toward the back fins and lower struts,and on the edge of the shell itself.In hindsight,I should have painted the inside front bulkhead(where the window glass and headlights go)the back bulkhead,and the lower docking ring separately.The interior shells should be painted in a light blocking color first,I chose Tamiya Flat Aluminium. The other thing I though of afterwords is that I should have painted the blue stripes on the body,let dry and masked them off and THEN painted the body with the main color,duh!These step would have made the process much easier.
