Mikro-Mir 1/72 De Havilland DH108 Swallow

June 28, 2022 · in Aviation · · 12 · 0.9K

A fun little kit,
It needs a little care and attention as it's short run and there's a bit of flash and some of the locating holes are a tad small for the parts.
Primed with Neutral Grey
Painted with Tamiya Nato Black, Flat Aluminium, Rubber Black, Lacquer Gloss Black, ColourCoats Light Aircraft Grey, Alclad High Speed Silver.
Weathered with Citadel Nuln Oil, Flory Dark Dirt.
Finished with Windsor & Newton Satin Varnish.

I had a blast with this one.

Thanks for looking,
