Fun kit...

Will try to break my habit of the past few years of starting forever-unfinished build threads (this one is almost done; and will BE done).

Enjoy...

Funny - the gold base coat does not look as mottled or "sparkly" in person.

But I think that helps with the finish of Discovery as - being a digital model, under so many varying digital lighting scenarios - it always looks a bit different in every shot...

I've taken some creative liberties with the application of copper paint; both to correct errors and simply because I wanted to.

Again, Discovery is a bit of an enigma, and looks very different in so many different shots of the series.

And there is no physical model to compare to.

So I took some liberties, mostly on the nacelles...

Not sure what is happening with this gap.

Best I can tell, I have both pieces installed properly, but there is an unacceptable and grossly large gap.

Anyone else build this kit and run into this?

I will spray some clear packing tape (no texture) with copper, and cut some 5mm x 3mm squares to cover the gaps...
