Default First progresses on the Altares

Here are the first pics of my Larson Altares. The kit is of course not in the league of the smallart castings. Therefore -> more work and forcing myself to accept some inaccuracies.

Layout of parts

I started with cleaning all the parts, washing them and spraying them with FDW and after masking with a blue metalic. The kit was missing the nozzles of the CM, so I built them with some jewellery drop pearls. You will see this in the next part of my Altares build up info.

First subassemblies, prepared to be detailed. The blue looks a bit too bright, but this will change when all gets its final matt varnish coat.

Hope to show more soon.
