Space exploration kits built

Started this little kit - actually very nice - Got the decals off line a bit as I've added each stage/section, but I'm enjoying the build....

All stages finished now - Just the detail on the Freedom 7 capsule to paint and the LES tower to assemble and paint.

Finished the capsule as Freedom 7 (Alan Shepard's) - the L.E.S. tower on the capsule was a bit of a chore due to being so fiddly to assemble. But it's worth it as in 1/72nd scale it could moulded too thick,....Then I finished the unit up. Happy with it on my space exploration shelf....

I like the metal colour. What is it?

Its Star Brite chrome rattle can spray over Tamiya TS-14 gloss black - The first Titan booster is the same paint of Tamiya gloss silver...But it works better over gloss black.
