What method did you use to do the reflective part of the lights? They look amazingly good.

Vermin King, outside is paper, inside is aluminium paper and the "glass" is acetate used in classroom projectors.

Peter Taft, thanks by follow this thread. You are one of the few that communicate.

By doing those headlights like this you really gave them depth. Beautiful work, Z!
It makes this build one of the most amazing experiences I've seen in model building. I think it is a build we all learn from. Even if it is only patience.
Your sense for detail is amazing and the subtle weathering of the machine makes it a beautiful thing.

I think people just don't know what to say. The build is so spectacular any praise does not seem like enough.

The model is just beautiful and your work is fantastic. I like how you have kept the weathering to just enough to look good.

jagolden01, I think that the feedback is important, for example your opinion about the weathering it's important.
Along this two months, I can count by fingers of a hand the members that maintains some conversation.

HMCS, you're not a spectator, you say your opinion, you put questions. And thank you for that, so do not feel posting for nobody.

I love how the model evolves from disparate pieces and grows. And I have no comments other than "fantastic", "very realistic", "extraordinary" and so on - and I feel like to post them would be to dilute the essence of this thread.
Other than that, I feel like this:
