lets try it this way. I really like this model a lot, a real lot. Working on the engines they have every panel line in the right place as the real deal, a panel is missing between the cowling cover and the engine but in this scale it would be impossible to fit in the available space.I wish now I had used a decal windshield as dust particles have attached themselves to the inside of the window panes. The silver frame that was supplied with the decals didn't quite match up with scribings on the windshield, two vertical posts were way off. The cockpit interior is sort of visible but the clear plastic is too thick to see it clearly. Somewhere along the line I lost the "Star Alliance" decals that go just aft of the cockpit windows. There is a satellite antennae that I haven't figured out how to make yet. Hope to finish this up by Tuesday.

Satellite antenna is available from BraZ models.
