Heller 1/72 Bloch 174 A-3
I’m still working on the Pe-2, and have spent the last couple of weeks securing and installing a spray booth, as I’m going to try my hand at airbrushing for the first time (testing Akan paints on the Pe-2, in prep for an F-4E in Greek Aegean Ghost Scheme). In the meanwhile, I borrowed a photo tent from a friend to see if it would help me take any better pics of my models, and to test it, decided to select something I hadn’t posted in iModeler. This is an older build, and was my first attempt at post shading panel lines with pastel chalk powder. OOB build and nothing special. The paint chipping on the walk areas is a bit stark – especially under the camera’s eye!
Old Heller kit – and I think I only added the guy in the nose. I didn’t do any reference work, so that big glass nose looks pretty empty!
I don’t think the tent helped me much, so will just stick to my poster-board backdrop for now and not worry about better lighting.
