    Well here is my latest offering to you all. Was a nice kit to build apart from the 'more than usual' bits of flash from Tamiya. Had to clean up quite a few bits. Now i know this is not in the norm so i'll let it go as a one off.

    Did a few new things with this kit.

    Firstly i've added undercarriage leg information plates. I made these out of degreased quality street tinfoil painted with semi-gloss humbrol (Satin Hu85) then lightly scratched the surface to make it look like writting.
    Secondly i've actually added aeriel wire inside the canopy and externally using EZ-line
    Thirdly i've had a go at mottling. Have to say my new airbrush should take the plaudits for that. Not up to some of your standards on here but at least it's a starting point lol

    So here we go :)

    It was dead easy to use. Loves sticking to things with static though lol. But other then that i'm going to use it all the time for my aeriels

    Steve. Would you recommend less mottling? It seems a little OTT

    It varied a lot. Some had very little out of the factory,certainly far less than on their competitors from the Messerschmitt plants. It's always best to try and find a reference for your aircraft or at least one in the same unit or production block.
