Great finish everyone. Don, I too was from a space family. Pop worked for North American Aviation then Rockwell and so it was a family thing.

My Jupiter C is finished at last. I'll shoot the pics tonight & post in the morning here and to the gallery.

The Jupiter C is done at last. I had an issue with an enamel wash at almost the last minute. The basic white had been applied a full week before giving it a wash made from Humbrol paint & Humbrol thinner. This thinner must be pretty hot as it started to melt the white. As soon as I figured this out I stopped and the white hardened OK allowing the dull overcoat to go on without issues. That was a close one!

This was a great campaign and I thank everyone for sharing their builds & experiences remembering one of the high spots in world history.
