My last (14th) completed model for 2017. I was underwhelmed with the kit when I began working on it, but by the end of the project I was really happy with how solidly engineered the kit is, and with its fine surface details. The build is very simple and more or less idiot-proof. I chose the white winter finish, as I wanted something I could do quickly. There was some user error with the theater bands (maybe its not so idiot proof?), which made things go a bit slower, but in the end it turned out fine. I had a lot of fun weathering this one.

Painting was done largely with Tamiya.
I began with Nato Black base coat, then a light coat of Light blue/white mix underneath. I then repeatedly applied fine, uneven misty coats of flat white to the topside. The gelb is a mix of flat yellow and orange. Weathering was done with artists oils, and a bit of dark brown pigment powders on the wheels.

That is a lovely small scale Gustav, Ralph, with a very nicely applied winter scheme and great weathering that has been done to the right degree IMHO 8-)

This I like very very much Ralph; very nicely done and just the right amount of weathering

At last, the missing 109!
Well done, Ralph. Just the right amount of weathering, I reckon - too easy to overdo it on this scheme.

Cheers,

David

Well done!

Thank's gents. It may be my favorite aircraft finish that I've done, to date.

I wish I could paint like that. Indeed I wish that I could use an airbrush! A very fine finish and the weathering is extremely well done - and certainly not by an idiot!!
