a small update for man and a giant update for mankind ..

ah, ok, a bit lame but hopefully someone might chuckle at that, even if it aint entirely true

Anyhow, looking at just how good the Dragon kit is compared
to the old Airfix I thought I might try to emulate some of the details starting with the underside,

not as accurate as I would like but the saw kept slipping about ...
and the bottom "bottom" bit is only an inch and half across if that so dividing it up into
36 segments was very fiddly to do ...

Anyhow, once it's wrapped up in Green & Blacks Milk Chocolate (35% Cocoa) gold wrapper
it will pass nicely [biggrin]

BTW, really nice chocolate [wink]

The foil is quite thin and scrunches up to a nice patina,
hopefully the right mix of Tamiya Red and Yellow clear gloss will give it the right sheen etc.

Anyway fun fact, it took the Saturn V 12 seconds to clear the tower on lift off
during which time it had already burned through 180 tons of fuel !!

Step one of the foiling over and I am happy with how it's shaping up
Certainly a vast improvement over the plain kit surface.
Colour is not quite right I feel but a few tests with the Tamiya transparent colours will help [smile]
the insert pic is with the flash on.
