So let me give you a quick review and maybe some ideas. I admit I Love old Sci Fi. This particular one is VERY……. Similar to one that use to be on a TV show around 1966 that currently is on METV. I also happen to have an older reference book ( The Saucer Fleet ) Hagarty/Rogers that may be available on the internet. So…. Mine is almost complete. I’ve currently finished the underside in Testors diamond dust silver. The propulsion area I sprayed with a combination of Testors and Tamiya paint going from red to orange into a yellow with a white center. The paints had no reaction to the plastic and worked beautifully. I used Tamiya panel line black and brown to highlight the outer edge. The bottom ring was painted blue as per the book ref. What do I know. I had Nassau Blue and sprayed the interior walls etc. with that, again it was close to the photo in the book. I decided to do the doors with Bare metal foil as well as using some colored plastic sequins? to add some unearthly controls. Assembly so far as been straight forward. There is minimal flash on the parts. I’ll paint the rest of the Saucer with the diamond dust spray and may dust in some blue just to add a little color. I built this one as a kid. Excellent job Atlantis! Keep them coming!
