I agree with Polux, those stripes are well done Tony. A fiddly looking kit!

Wipers on close up, excuse the dust , i had just been sanding the wheels on the Tu 160 and forgot to blow the dust off the puma before takong the pic! Nearly ther now just the fine aerials on the nose to make from paintbrush bristles ( 1 " no loss nylon bristle type ) and the two aerials on the tail boom with wires running between them . The trouble is , once i fit those i wont have anywhere to pick the model up by so i'm going to fit them after ive stuck it down to the base , cheers tony

Here it is , all finished apart from the writing on the base. I tried to make the base look like a pic i had seen of this heli in the previously mentioned walkaround ,apart from the people!! The fine aerials on the nose and tail boom were paintbrush bristles and the base was a piece of card cut from the kit box and painted up, stuck on a 4" x 5" piece of oak. I'm going to take some more pics outside (better light) for a 'completed' thread but ive got to sort the nameplate and a tiny bit of sooty exhaust weathering first , heres the (nearly) finished item ,thanks to everyone whos been following , cheers tony:cool:View attachment 68635
