    The 1:400 Frontier DC-3 is another that comes to mind - it looks like a little windowless freighter. At least the windows aren't cornflower blue as per Corgi 1:144

    Very sharp little F70, though

    Once it becomes a classic it's made of poison

    This one looks very nice indeed, some people must be happy

    That's true However, a lighter shade of grey could be used on dark cheatlines or the windows could be framed in silver. This might not be 100% accurate but neither is having 'invisible' windows.
