Just for fun, and because it was small, I built the Start 1/288th scale Energiya-M model. Being small, I could wrap it up quickly. I also practiced some weathering and wash techniques. A model this small, with rather indistinct detail, needs a little help. Oddly, my kit was missing the engine bells for the strap-on boosters. Since they are below the base, I did not worry about it. The only other note is that I used decals for the orbiter windows.
