    Q Tips

    Glued a Qtip to back of rocket unwound the cotton and then inserted into the laucher opening, quick and simple. The rocket was scratch built of course after looking at some images on the net. Thanks I really like to build Jules models, just something about the clean lines.

    Nice, but it looks "too clean" ;)
    Would be nice to have some dirt or combat damage

    Well the first two were very dirty from glue etc. But a clean build in paper is what it is about for me. I save dirt for the resin. But I like the idea. I will grab one of the old ones and hit it with the airbrush and see what happens.

    Nice job!
    Jules' models have a fine, distinct look. Good build and use of the cotton.

    Great job. I really like the rocket launch effect. How long did it take you to build?

    Nice job.
    Only one "mistake" the missil looks like have a bigger scale than tank.
    By the way it's a great job.
