January 5, 2016 in Aviation
Hi fellow modellers. It has been a while since my last post, but I think this one is good enough to be presented on this site.
I have been waiting for this kit for a long time and was pleasantly surprised and somehow dissapointed at the same time as this kit has good and bad features. I’ve decided to throw in basically everything that was available for it at the time of the build, so complete Eduard Photo etched set was used and in the middle of the build, The scale worship rotor fold was bought (as my display cabinet was a bit too tight for extended rotors. A fair bit of scrathbuilding was also needed for all the exterior piping. Used lead wires and some albion alloy tubing. Painting was done using Gunze paints, weathering with Ammo washes. Hope You like it. And don’t forget to enjoy your (our) hobby! Best regards! G
