Default (FP) Colonial One (DONE)

HI ,its one to my next model. Fantastic Plastic Colonial One. This model a about 10" long when done,and is roto cast so i could be lit if one wanted to do that , which would be bad doing the main body but the head piece would be difficult to do so that's why I'm skipping lighting this one. How ever any ideas on what to do with the windows as far as making them look lit would be appreciated.
BTW :the 1st thing I noticed about this kit is that the windows along the front edges are round and not square so that's the 1st thing that I'm fixing.
Here's some pictures of what you get.

Listen I'm no pro and I'm learning everyday and I just completed my 2nd kit, the owner of Fantastic Plastic just bought one of my X-Wing Concept kits, but to have an established company with kits of this quality is really unacceptable for the money being shelled, out either the master was poorly done or the molds are worn out you can just look at the box art, but with a little skill putty, a scribing tool, sandpaper and some styrene it can be saved.

The next thing that i fixed was the cockpit windows on the front nose, it was to small and the wrong shape so i fixed it. I also scribed some more panel lines in it.

OK got some progress today. I glued the bridge onto the body And the engines to the back and scribed some panel lines. Had to use quite a bit of filler seeing that the bridge don't fit like i wanted it to but i think when I'm done it will look pretty good.

Well I got the main body done and ready for prime & paint. Trying to put as much detail in as possible seeing that the cast wasn't the best ,I also scribed in the panel lines as well.

The cast is fine. there arent many obvious bubbles or misalignments. Look elsewhere for the cause of the faults. The caster is only copying what was there originally. Like the line of wavy round windows (before cylon managed to line them up a bit)

There was bubbles on it they have been filed and i had to use filer for gaps between the body the head piece and the panel line were almost unseeable. It needs work for the price that it cost . But it is workable.I'm not trying to make it look like its not wroth buying ,I wish it was cleaned up a little before it was cast again,that's all.
