The model showing below is a full buildup of this proteus model EXTERIOR PLUS INTERIOR kit by artist Kelvin Thompson. He's scratchbuilt a base, scratchbuilt many modifications (ladders, equipment, keyboards etc...) and even incorporated some interior lighting. Good job showing off this great model, Kelvin!!
**please note the photos showing here of the completed finished model was built by a very skilled model maker. He personally scratch made several tiny detail pieces (keyboards, graphics panels, clipboards, etc...) These tiny details are not included in the kit I offer. Please review the photos of my full kit (interior plus exterior) to see what is included in the kit you will receive if you order this kit.
Thanks, Kelvin! Great job!!
