This is a pretty much out of the box Stuka B2 from Italeri. I did add my own cockpit detail with styrene strip and other pieces. I used decals from Eaglecals.
Painted using model master acrylic paint and weathered with pastels and pigments.
Well between struggling to get motivated and finding time to build, I have actually completed what I started in February. A really nice kit providing lots of opportunity for extra detailing! I spruced up the cockpit and added scratchbu[...]

Here is my PM Models TA-154, a kit that I really enjoyed building, probably as I was prepeared for being a bit of work. It definitley needs lots of test fitting, sand paper, plastic card and the occaisional filler.
