Default S-3 Viking Whif

Hey, what's the FS# for the color "Electric Mucus???"

This is the 1/48 Esci S-3 kit. I was building this off and on, with the goal of making it into Navy 1. Well, after not messing with it for a few months, I opened my modeling closet and saw that a shelf fell. As a result, it had a wing cracked in half, the other wing barely hanging on, and a few other parts broken off or set loose. So, I decided to repair what I could, and build it as a Whif.

So, do you guys think I got a good match for the main color "Electric Mucus?"

I"m sure many of you guys will be able to guess what this will end up being.





Here's the repaired cracked wing. It's much more noticeable in person.


Misc pieces. Note the cargo pods in case you guys haven't figured it out.

For the Futurama fans, this is what I based my concept on

For a moment I thought there was something wrong with the whitebalance of your camera

Almost done...

Just have to get the gear on, and secure it to the base

The wing crack is still pretty obvious, and it only got worse when I tried a wash for the first time. It was my first attempt, so it didn't turn out too well. Some areas were too dark, some areas couldn't hold the wash, but at least it dirtied up the airframe like I wanted. I eventually started to do everything half assed since I just wanted to finish this thing to get it out of the way.

Hopefully will be done in a few hours.
