Just got this beast and I'm looking to start. Anyone have ideas on an operational camo or paint scheme? Really don't want to do all white.

Magnificent!

I am afraid they were all shining white as protection from the light flash of a nuclear explosion.

Just buy all the Humbrol stock of the US and you will be fine

Hi Winston

I'm looking forward to following this one!

I hope the little chap in the photo won't go without pocket-money for the next year because his Dad blew it all on the kit he's holding so proudly...

All the best

I've said it before and I'll say it again. That's no moon, it's a space station.

Paint it in what if colours man. I say, if you decide to go what if go all out and you go for Ferris Scheme:

He won't have to worry I traded kits rather than spending cash, Kits are just another form of cash I've already spent. This should be a fun project and he's going to help where possible.
