1/48 Dragon Ta 154
The decals on this kit “exploded” as soon as they hit the water, those that didn’t promptly fell apart on contact with the model. With very few after market options available I scrounge around the spares box for replacements but in the end I had to make custom ones for the fuselage codes of a fictitious aircraft. The mottle is also fictitious but based on references of night fighter aircraft of the period. The red dash lines on the wings were also custom made. A small amount of etch from Eduard assisted the detailing process. Aside from an ENORMOUS amount of weight in the nose and engines it was a fairly straight forward build.
