Last build of last year…first build of this year. Mengs 1/48 Me-410 heavy fighter.
This was meant to be the last build of the year but she stretched into the first week of the new as it got away from me. I kept her very simple and just tried to concentrate on my paintwork more than anything. I’m still debating if i should have used blutac or similar for the edging but i do prefer just free handing it as i feel it gives a more natural look. Minimal weathering, oil wash and some pigments finished her off.
The Quickboost spinner and prop kit was used as the supplied set is rather terrible and really takes away from what is otherwise a very neat little kit.
Hope you all had a bit of a break from the eternal slog in the last few weeks, and here’s to a good year of modelling and life in general to look forward to chaps, cheers.
