Beautiful. When did Revell tool up the interior? When I built the kit in the early 90's it had a tub style interior.

I believe the interior was only done that way for that version.

Thanks guys! I appreciate the comments. It was a fun build, and went together very well! I especially liked that the final assembly stages were a breeze, unlike several others I've done recently. :)
