I stand by my original comment that the current paint job on the model photographs
very nicely. I'd been hearing the outrage about the "weathering" and "gridlines" added for the September 1992 celebrations - but, seeing it in person a few weeks ago, it was more subtle than I'd expected. And now, at least, I understand why so many model kits manufacturers over the decades felt the need to add gridlines.
The final paint job on the Galileo
is destined not to please everyone, too.
