November 25, 2013 in Aviation
The cockpit is from True Details. The seat is from Lions Roar and the seat belts are lead foil with Waldron Buckles. The instrument panel is from eduard. Cockpit color is Model Master dark greem 34092. The engine is from Quickboost with brass pushrods and copper wire harness. Externally there is a Quickboost early cowl flap set and wheels from Ultracast. The olive drab and beutral grey is Xtracrylic thinned with distilled water. Adhesion was pretty good. No paint lifting when I masked the stripes. I kept the weathering pretty light as this aircraft had just recently been issued. The figure is a total bash. The head from from my spares box. The torso is from Reheat. The legs, hands, and feet are from Verlinden. The saluting digit is brass wire.
