Detailing the SpaceShipOne

Two weeks ago, when the weather was nice, I primered my SpaceShipOne and put one coat of white spray paint on it. Last week, I got a second coat of white on, and then the red detailing on the nose cone, nozzle, and the leading edges of the wings and tail.

Now, I'm finally getting around to getting the detailing on. I'm primarily using the design of this free paper model from Currell, especially this very useful scale drawing.

So far all the detailing I've done is the numerous round black windows on the nose, which were hard to position but look excellent. The original kit had decals, but many are ruined or missing, so I'll be drawing most of the decalling on by hand.
