very nice;
did you use gloss black for the window-sheen effect?
or is that like a black-plastic/ semi-satin 80GSM black origami paper, with a shiny film in it cut to shape?
the windows look as sheeny as the actual model, top stuff.
how did you find polishing the window surfaces to take the basecoat?

is that an ABS insert for the nacelle, or, is it all one piece?
and, is it a metallic blue paint for the nacelle?
that's a great effect I'll have to try recreating on my 1:72 scale Type 9 cochrane style 'speedboat' shuttle.

it is matte black acrylic paint for the windows, yes it is a metallic blue acrylic paint for the warp nacelle grilles ,
the impulse engines and warp nacelle bussards are gloss red acrylic paint,
i used pieces of sheet styrene to fill in the gaps were the two halfs of the model got a little bowed while printing
