Default 4R 1/200 Alitalia MD-11 I-DUPA

One last update for today... Refinishing a Hogan model for a friend of mine.

I ran out of paint anyway, so we're all waiting for the next installment together...

Andy it looks beautiful, but if you don't mind my saying, I'd just like to make an observation which is that I feel the cabin window cheatline is a little too low or the cockpit windows too high or both. It almost looks like the a/c has a staircase leading up to the flight deck.

Also wouldn't the engines have looked a bit better with high gloss silver instead of bare metal foil? That metal foil can be quite subborn around sharp curves and edges. By high gloss silver, I mean the type I have used on the engines of this EK A380 below:

The silver I used on the EK A380 engines is by Humbrol # 191 'Gloss Silver'. I actually thought at first those were some protective coverings on the engines you used while painting the models till I realised its bare metal foil. Also the cheatline needs to be pushed up and the cockpit windows a bit down.
