Yeah that 350 strongback decal ate my lunch too. But that's the learning curve we all go through. In the future you'll have some more skills when it comes to application.
Just a gallon?

Here are some shots of the model with the lights on ...

The nacelles are part finished and only just clipped in place with temporary wiring connections, but I couldn't resist seeing how it would all look. There is still a fair bit to be done, but the end is nearer than it was a few weeks ago!

A deep look into the shuttle bay. When it's finished, I'll try a stacked depth of field shot here to get it all in focus.
