    Very nice work nothing (my brother was a member onboard the Daniel Boone SSBN 629) it will be a nice build, and a nice surprize!

    well dont get to excited yet. may not be released. there is some contension over my choice of weathering. the textures on the parts are pixilated which i chose for the effect it gave of being well used. on the finished model i felt it gave a sort of "blur" between the various shades. i am happy with the result. then again my mom always said i was a bit warped;) i dont know if i will recolor or not yet.

    I wouldn't change a thing

    I think the color scheme is fine !
    Maybe an uncolored version with just boundary lines and details.
    I like it the way it is.:thumb:
    Good job !

    dude, you should def make a diorama out of it! Make some water, have it submerged, and then have the missile coming out of the tube with some cotton wadding for exhaust. you could have it suspended in a box, and have a side view, with the missile about to break the surface of the water! Talk about COOOL!:thumb:
