Excellent result Michael and I particularly like the distressed paintwork. Certainly some nice detail in the kit.

The interior LED looks pretty effective.

Thanks!
This kit was as close to scratchbuilding as it gets.
:)
With the difference that, if I would have scratched it, I would have used modern (and better) material instead....
It's great fun though to build one of these very old kits.
Now it has fulfilled its purpose; to be built!
:cb:BTW, I've noticed that when using a diffuser in front of the LED makes the light softer and more evenly spread.A bonus is that you can't see the out of scale light source.
