This 1/48 kit has been around for quite some time,and,after getting an old one,I knew it was time to build it and test some techniques…

First steps were – as usual – assembly of cockpit parts,in this kit a nice surprise
8 attached images. Click to enlarge.
Next,with no troubles,joining fuselages and wings:

Then,it was time for the silver undercoat,in this case Humbrol 11:
4 attached images. Click to enlarge.
The camouflage was a SEA one,using a weathered IJA Brown,by means of Tamiya XF-64 diluted just with common household alcohol and no retarder:
3 attached images. Click to enlarge.
Afterwards,due to the brown being heavily ‘stiff’ on the Humbrol 11,I began chipping with sticks,hard point tools, and whatever was available to mix a bit those scratches,plus some light sanding,too.The result was this:
6 attached images. Click to enlarge.
Next camo polishing the brown,as to varnish it in prep to decalling,and then application of the decals and some wash here and there:
2 attached images. Click to enlarge.
Finally a semi-gloss varnish and I called it a day.Hope you like it!
10 attached images. Click to enlarge.

Outstanding, Marcus! I really like the Oscar. It’s a fine looking, if early, aircraft.

Beautiful, I do not understand why I have not built the model yet

Very nice work. Intresting contrast between the heavy weathering of the upper surfaces and nearly no weathering on the lower surfaces and especially the spinner.
