Just Like The Moonraker

I've been continuing to build model kits, mostly of vehicles from the Bond films, as a way of passing the lockdown hours. Soon after Christmas I bought myself a 1:200 scale Moonraker, which I completed last week.

The parts went together beautifully, and the paint job was mostly gloss white from a rattle can; the difficult bit was making the finished shuttle look like it's been TO SPACE. I don't always weather my models, but this one needed some grime from heat, exhaust gases and debris to make it convincing. I'm really pleased with the end result:

You should be. That's very nice indeed!
Seconded!
Thank you both, and thanks again to ggreig for all the Endeavour photos! (I didn't realise you were still in these parts or I'd have credited you in the post.)
Och, no need!

I'm not actively in these parts in the sense of posting anything, but I still follow my friends via RSS feed so that I can catch up occasionally.
I would 100% believe that had gone to space!
Yay!
This does look amazing, nice work!
Thank you!
