Model notes:

This model was built by Markus C. Nee and was completed in May 1999. It is in 1:1400 scale, and is approximately 13" long. It is an unmodified Starcrafts resin kit, one of my rare stock buildups. The model was painted with Gunze Sangyo acrylic paints, and lettered with Chartpak dry transfers.
