I originally built this model some time in the early '90s, after just getting back into the hobby from a long layoff. In 2007, I decided to rebuild it rather than toss it out, and can actually present before and after photos!


Here it is as originally built and painted, prior to being disassembled for the rebuild (apologies for the crappy photo):




And after several months' work, which featured lots of scratchbuilding and a complete rescribe, here's the renovated result:








Needless to say, all the markings, save for the tail number and a few stencils, were painted on using hand-cut masks (this was long before consumer-level craft cutters had become commonplace). Still one of my most enjoyable builds!
