    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 :)

    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.
    Cheers
