Here is my build of the Model Expo kit in 1:24 scale. Other than the base, I built it straight from the box. I cut the base out of African Mahogany on my CNC machine. I spent 105 hours on this model. Hope you enjoy.

I don't believe I've seen this model Mike. Another beautiful job, especially with the paint job. I bought that kit a few years ago but lost interest in it and ended up selling it to someone. Now I kind of wish I had kept it and built it. It's different and has some nice details on it.

Thanks Bob. I just finished it last month. It begs for extra detailing. I think there is a build log here of another one with some nice detailing.
I'll have to look for that log. I can't imagine what additional details can be added but I'm very interested in that.
