Chavdar,
those Vector engines sure do look mighty sweet. And your detailing and painting only makes them that much better

OMG!!

Your diorama just blew me away. I've had this kit in my stash forever, as it's huge and space is at a premium, but after seeing what you've accomplished with the kit, I'm getting that urge once again.

The weathering really has kicked up your build a few notches for sure. those Vector engines really need a few additional close ups so we can see all that incredible detail.
