and............................................... ..voila! It's done.

The fins are actually much more florescent-looking than you see in the photos.

Thanks for watching and for the assists!

I hope Carl would be proud.

Great job on the N-T. I have one of the Carl SEMROC kits and bought some of the parts to clone one. For some reason I have BR-1120NT transition instead of the Br816NT. Funny that I can't find it in any order from SEMROC in NC or OH (I-O). Sorry, the Buckeye in me.

Thanks! Looking at that photo I believe my cradle marks might be a little short, but I was just going by the one on the decal sheet.

I have never done a build with a Shroud of Turin, but I did order several of the plastic Shrouds of LEM to upgrade a few older Saturn V kits...

By the way, your final pictures of the N-T look great!
