Great little kit to build and paint.
Painted in Vallejo Model Air using a brush and a cocktail stick!
Just a bit of roughing up, streaking, chipping and weathering.

I'm going to try and add that superb winter 'Squiggle' camouflage picture option which Tony posted on his recent i-16 build.... :fearful:

Cheers.

Hi Ron
You go from one extreme to the other. A b****y great cardboard ship and an itty-bitty plastic plane. And now the threat of squiggles!! :tongue-out3: Your eyes are doomed, doomed I say! (quoting Frazier)

Excellent little tiddler mate ! These little kits are incredible aren’t they ,just click together seamlessly and the detail is brilliant ( that windscreen is a tricky paint though isn’t it!!). Looking forward to the squiggles and if you get the bug they do a fair few of these cheap click together kits , both armour and aircraft .

Agree 100%. Their 1/100 armour kits are superb quality and can be found really cheaply if you search around.

Really looking forward to your squiggles - but you must really be a sucker for punishment for trying them!

Thanks chaps.

Ya gotta have a challenge in life, Dave.

First attempt done with a sharpened cocktail stick.
Came out o.k., but far too blotchy and no real squiggles!
I think I was still painting 'that' camouflage on my recent 1/72 Sparviero...... :upside:

Anyway, here it is - or was. I've overcoated it all out with the green.

Start again, Ron.

I need summat far sharper than a sharpened cocktail stick!

Sorted.

The wife suggested a large safety pin...and it's working!
