1/96 Saturn V โ€“ Revell

Hi, finally finished kit from Revell in 1/96 scale. I tried my best. It is not perfect and there are small differences with original rocket but Iam ok with it. Now it will be nice piece of decoration ๐Ÿ‘

Smoke is pet bottle wrapped around with led stipe, some leds I paint transparent yellow and red paint , literally only separate leds, randomly but on top i let it be white, in middle orange, bottom red and then cotton wool glue on it. Cotton then is painted just a little bit with grey shades from middle to bottom. It is no magic ๐Ÿ™‚ simple and easy.

Anyway the kit is from previous century so quality is … just Revell ๐Ÿ˜€
I hope you will like it ๐Ÿ˜‰
