The Grissom is a vacu-form kit I picked up some time ago. It built up well, It was as easy as a normal kit.
For the saucer, supports were added as well extra plastic in the lower hull and engines. Because it is a vacu-form kit, the kit had thin spots in the plastic, so backing strips had to be added in some of the joints.
Once all the fill and sanding was done, it was on to the paint booth, I mixed my own colors for this kit. The base color is an 
Wff White (White and Gray). For some panels I used Model Master Dark and Light French Blue Gra

After painting I airbrushed and dry brushed Flat Black for weathering details.
