Does it say there is a re-issue of Waves old injection plastic 1/100 LED Mirage, but this time with transparent plastic?

Pretty pointless stuff since the kit has no internals to be revealed by the clear armor, and cleaning up the seam lines on this kit would mess up the nice clear finish anyway.

Gah tempted as hell, since i wont afford the REAL transparent kits anytime soon... the plastic doesnt seem 100% transparent. It seems alittle "milky" like Waves newest injection 1/144 for the LED.

Maybe one can "paint" some details on the backside...LOL :roll:

I think you'll do more harm than good if you were to try and paint underneath the transparent without any detailing.
