Avia S-199 (KP, 1/72)
June 12, 2016 in Aviation
Avia S-199 is one of the last produced post-war Me 109’s variations and was the first fighter obtained by the IAF, forming Israel’s first fighter squadron. First Israeli’s aerial victory was also scored by S-199. So, I wanted this “Sakin” to land on my stash for a very long time, so first I’ve got AML kit, then I’ve bought some aftermarket parts and then KP released its new S-199 line in 1/72 scale. So, I’ve started WIP thread on iModeler – http://imodeler.com/groups/work-in-progress-aircraft/forum/topic/172-kpaml-avia-s-199-in-iaf-service The new KP kit is great, but I wanted to add to it as much details as I can.
This model is a mix of a new KP with AML (PE and resin) and scratch parts (more information in WIP thread). Base color – Hataka (Poland) authentic acrylics. Weathered with oils and pigments.
Hope you’ll like it!
