Hello guys , how are you there ?
A quick update just to show you my progress with the painting proccess .
The Fi103 is painting following a picture that shows a machine which seems to have been assembled from pieces of three different batches and therefore the result is somewhat careless or otherwise particularly interesting for someone who is usually looking for something beyond the familiar and the usual.
So the nose is painted in RLM 76 v.1 with blotches of RLM 81 v.3 and RLM 83 , the mid section is painted with RLM 76 with thick irregular lines of RLM 74 & RLM 81 v.2 and the backwards including the engine with RLM 76 and alot of lines of RLM 74 , 81 v.3 & 83 .
Oh yes , before I forget , the wings are RLM 81 v.3 and RLM 83 .
The decoration is the absolutely necessary and limited to a swastica on the tail and three small warning stencils on the nose .
At the other side the Ohka : a very simple colors set with only two colors , which is the only one that differs somewhat from the monochrome.
In fact, it is very likely that they are two different shades of the same color or even a difference caused by the lighting.
In any case , the Ohka is painted with Hairyokushoku (grey green) and …RLM 78 ! The second color is as close as possible to the shade shown in the photo I used as a reference point .
Ohka is most decorated than Fi 103 and have a flower on both sides of the nose and the number 20 in black , simple font , but no rising suns .
All the colors are from AK air colors except the RLM 83 that comes from Gunze .
So , next step is a light post shading with oils , matt varnish , finishing the Ohka trolley and …entrance to the showcase !
Next update will be the final , untill then , be safe and have fun !
