Hi Guys,

This is my entry for Ian's GB, the much loved Hog in experimental snow camo.

This is only the 2nd aircraft I've built, so some mistakes were made and still a lot of learning to do. However, as a dedicated tank guy I have really enjoyed this build and definitely want to try more aircraft. :smiling3:

Mostly built OOB, I added some PE for the cockpit, a resin bang seat and a brass GAU-8 30mm cannon. Presented on a quick and dirty base made of pizza bases. :tears-of-joy:

Cheers,

B

Bob, superb workmanship there, a beautiful build.
All those decals would drive me insanitary, that's for sure.

Top work, and don't you just love the good old pizza bases.....

Cheers Steve & Ron. :smiling3:

I have a whole new appreciation of pizza bases, I knew they would come in useful eventually.
