Default War Of The Worlds Manta Ship

Lovely kit this, quite big at about 10 inches across.
Comes with clear green bits and a clear red for the Heat Ray lens.
Was thinking of gouging out the resin to lay fibre optics to the clear areas but chickened out.
Opting instead to build a ruined diorama for it.
Being 1/72nd scale that ain't gonna be a prob.

Thanks for the info, Manga.

I had seen that listing at cultman but it never stated dimensions
and I thought it might be rather small. 10" wingspan is a size I
would prefer.

Thanks again!

Ta very much for the comments.
Finish on the hull is Halfords "Ford Arizona Gold" sprayed over black primer - nearest thing there i could find to copper.
