After the ship halves were glued together, Tamiya filler was applied to the main body seam. After this was dried and sanded,Tamiya white primer was sprayed on the model to fill any imperfections. Red auto scratch filler was also applied to fill in the seams. A hobby vise came in handy

The Luna ship has a very sleek look, with clean lines. The only detail is the two port holes and hatches. I wanted a little more detail to give the ship more interest. A light line was scribe around the upper part of the nose. to represent the parachute,s separation housing. below this scribe line four reaction control thrusters were made by using a micro drill bit to make the thrust holes

. This detail can only be seen close up,and not from a distance, to still provide a clean look to the ship. The last detail was a faint ring scribed around the hull.This was made above the cargo hatch to represent a emergency separation line,between the control room and cargo area. Again this line is very faint to see to not distract from the clean lines of the ship. After the detailing was done the ship was primed again with Tamiya primer.
