Many thanks for your kindness.
Drybrushing can be effective for sure.
My friends this build is finished.
Following the last update the little things were completed and attached. There was one issue that is now a glaring reminder to me that it is not over until it is over. One of the last attachments was the clear parts. Following my normal procedure I fitted them and then used Tamiya Extra Thin to attach. This time the glue marred the surface and made the clear nasty. This does happen and in itself it did not bother me too much except for the idea that I had been working this "live" and did not have alternative parts.
All in all this experiment was a success in my mind and I put it to the shelf with a smile.
