Thank you guys.
This is a really nice kit. I wrecked it trying to strip off a coat of silver paint I didn't like.(testor diamond dust)

use oven cleaner on this type of plastic. or....

It will look like this!

Thanks, the undercarriage is only a few parts (3)

It needed lots of sanding and even more masking.
I really love the kit, I was cleaning house the other day and saw it hiding buried in some unloved projects. Even if she ain't perfect it's better to finish the build and get her on a shelf.

Thanks guys! I used rustoleum mettalic over white primer. Then two coats of future.
The brake fluid had cracked the hull in spots so I needed a shiny but sandable silver.

it's a two footer, But I really love this ship.

I really love the WWC Ark kit, I just love those old Sci-Fi ships
I wonder if Pegasus Models will be doing more subjects like these.

Would be great if they released a kit of the Mars One ship
from 1951 Flight To Mars;
