Having a blast with this kit...in anticipation for the Round 2 kit on it's way.

The model is, of course, in progress. For the interior colors I used all my reference material from the episode Galileo 7. The interior cabin as well as rear engine are lit.
I did not light the domes on the end of the nacelles...why? because they were never lit in the show, Im boring that way.

The model was airbrushed with a mixture of Tamiya and Model Master paint.
Once the interior is complete, the model will be sealed and the exterior two tone colors applied.

Currently the upper hull is just sitting on the model and is unpainted/light blocked. Again, I need to complete the interior then I will address the exterior with seam filling ETC...

1/25 "Randy Cooper" Galileo Shuttlecraft build.
"In Progress"
The upper hull currently is removable (hence the noticeable split in the wings.)so, at a future date, I can add more interior detail before permanently sealing the model up.
The interior and rear engine light up.
The nacelle caps do not light up...why? They NEVER did in the series. Im boring that way.
Eventually I will build a Diorama for the model after I have some video fun, like my other builds, of the Shuttlecraft doing it's thing.

Very nice build! I'm not sure how I missed this back when you started, but I'm glad to see it now.

I just finished the old AMT kit so it's nice to see what an accurate kit looks like!

A few questions, Do you have any photos of the kit parts before assembly?
And what colors did you paint the exterior?

Thanks!

Mark

Thanks! Sorry, I didn't bother to photograph the loose parts.


I airbrushed the colors from a mix of Tamiya Paint...

Use the same 2 colors of gray trim that on the TOS E: lower hull is the same as the impulse deck & nacelle recesses, and the upper hull is the gray color under the front ends of the nacelles.
I lightened them a little to reflect scale.
