SBS Model 1/72 De Havilland DH.88

October 26, 2021 · in Aviation · · 12 · 1.3K

This is an exquisite resin kit which I have not really done justice to, but here it is.

Primed with Tamiya Neutral Grey.
Painted with Mr. Color Gloss Black, Tamiya Red Brown and Rubber Black, Xtreme Metals Polished Aluminium.
Finished with Mr. Color Super Clear III Gloss.

I had a little trouble with the transfers which were extremely thing and didn't like much manipulation.
Looks good in the cabinet though.

Thanks for looking,
