Re: TOS AMT Model build

Of course, since the AMT kit is remarkably inaccurate (close enough to be "fun" but by no means "right"), you can do pretty much whatever you wish.
At least it was cheap. $17 for the model, another $30 (so far) for paint and glue. It is really too small to do anything impressive.

The original-series model simply has a frosted glass dome
That's an easy out, probably my end solution. Flat white inside the dome and done.

Say, a tube (probably one of those tubes they put M&Ms in?)
Really? Not familiar with those.

but that bridge is about the size of a silver dollar isn't it?
Maybe a quarter.

I remember building plastic planes that had some molded detail under the clear canopy. But that was usually a pilot in a small confined space. This area represents probably more than 100 sq. ft.
