Have you given some consideration to adding roof struts to the inside of the glass? I know it's something that wouldn't really be all that visible once the car's complete, but would break up the solid block of black on the inside of the car windows.
I'm not sure what you mean there Ben. Do you have photo examples?

Sadly no, what I meant was sticking some plastic or foam board on the inside of the windows to mirror the frames and roof pillars visible on the ouside of the car.

Yeah. Practice and patience--I got a lot of the former but had a problem with the latter when I was a kid. I pull out the old Monogram Saturn 5 or the original ECTO-1A from 1990 and actually sorta want to cringe.

But if you don't start, you'll never get there
