Looks very straight forward so this will all be in the painting and weathering

Looking like something from the movie The Blob, right now, but once the masking is off it’ll look terrific. It would take packets of blu tak to do this in 1:16. The beauty of Braille scale

Looking good. I'd perhaps blend in some of the streaks a little more and maybe weather the bonnet star a little more. It almost looks clean from the photos, but that may only be the photos. Lots of great work, and this is just the prime mover. Watching...

This old beast couldnt be more of a contrast to the super-detailed modern kits you built most recently eh!

I think you are making a nice job of it.
