I had expected the white hawk to be fully weathered like the orange version - the picture screams 'new from the showroom'.
Bower is in full meditation mode - head resting on hand while checking his pulse, those paint fumes are nicely toxic

At 600.00 I didn't think it was too bad. Put another way, I want you to make me a hawk model to my specification and have it finished by the original artist.

Or....

I would rather pay Chris Potter 200 to build and paint an RU Kit and use the rest to register for Fanderson.

Or....

I would rather pay Chris Potter 850 to build and paint THREE RU kits and have a squadron.

If it seems I am biased towards Chris Potters work, I am. He is damn good.

Apparently not priceless. Just 200.

I stand corrected.

Tube of superglue 5 quid...Do you shop at Harrods?
10 tubes from poundland for guess, and it's good stuff.

Nice. Not sure about the graffiti. A certificate would be nicer.

Is it me, or is the original paint colour scheme showing through the white? I swear I can see a hint of orange showing through on the Command Module and the two nacelles in the first of rockwellcm's two pictures.

I, too, would prefer a certificate or maybe a signature on the plaque over a signature on the model.

I see it too. Not quite the same white as the rest of the model!

If you enhance the first image in Photoshop, you can see the orange a little better. I'm not sure how visible it would be to the naked eye.
