    Incredible detail and a truly magnificent model, John!

    By the way, what paints and finish did you use?

    Paperbeam: The main paints, from which I use a lot, are just acrylic paints from the local building market store, 500ml cans, mixed to my needs, it's a lot cheaper as Humbrol or Revell paints, which I only use for the little parts.

    This is remarkable , not just the detail in the gun turret but details of the other parts of the ship as well. It must of taken a lot of time to research everything.
