Here's the progress so far. The final work is to finish putting on a yellow band. The decal fell apart. It is too thin. Then I'll finish the painting in the decal areas, add the foot rests, bombs, windscreen, and engine assembly, then a final coat of matte finish. I'm not happy with the decals. Even with softener, they aren't laying down as well as expected. The 20 year old swastika decals laid down better with softener.

Simon, your model is taking shape nicely, and Dave, like your winter camouflage- they will both soon be complete now.

Here's the latest. A couple of touch-ups on the gear area, add the windscreen and antennas and it should be done.

I think I've done all I can on this kit. I went back in and reduced the amount of "green" and added more white. Added the windscreen and antennas. Adjusted and add weathering on the fuselage.

That looks great Dave, like the winter camouflage.

Thanks, David. I wanted to capture the look of an aircraft getting close to the end of its service life. There are few photos that capture winter camouflage and conditions, but I think it comes across.
