Orion spaceplane from 2001 (Moebius)

Here's my take on Moebius' Orion spaceplane from 2001. I used Paragrafix photoetch for some exterior details and, of course, the interior. I also bought resin pieces for the main engine exhaust, but you can't really see them in the pictures. I added lighting for the passenger compartment and the cockpit. As you can see, I also bought a set of Pan-Am decals for the exterior (from TSDS).

When I first opened the kit, I was disappointed to see how incomplete the panel decals were. I had initially planned to paint them all, but in the end, I simply printed extra light grey panels and added them to simply suggest more panelling than Moebius provided. After completing the kit, I lightly sprayed white over the decals to tone them down a bit. I also added some light weathering.

Comments are welcome!
