My latest build. Learned a lot of new words, mainly swearing en cursing, during this build because it was a bloody PITA!!!!
The engine doesn’t fit properly in the frame, nor does the parts for the cowling and guns.
Did a lot of sanding, putty-ing (?? if this a correct English word) and cutting.
Everything is painted except the Kanji stencils. Tamiya acrylics were used. Chipping is done with Revell enamels silver and some green colours, exhaust stains is done with airbrush and Tamiya acrylics were used. Dirty wheels are made with Revell enamel paints and Tamiya weathering stuff. Wash is done with Vallejo black and sepia.
My appologies for the photographs, I thought they looked better when I shot them but they are a bit “dark”…..
