    Finished

    was on a roll today. one note. claudio provided bombs missiles and a fuel tank. i did not use them because i like the looks of this plane. sometimes i like to admire a plane for its lines without "stuff" hanging off it. this is a beautifull kit. it had a great fit and this is the best result ive ever had building. while sitting back looking at it i am truely stunned that this is a FREE kit. it is better than some of the ones ive payed for. :wave:a huge thank you to claudio for providing this kit!!:wave:

    What a great kit nothing...nothing, can I asked what you painted your kit with, how did you prepare the model for paint.....being paper I imagine you had to do something...

    I'm like you, just amazed that this is a FREE KIT! many thanks to Claudio as well...

    no prep. i used the best match tester paint and went for it. i had to paint around the details and panel lines to preserve them. using a brush does leave the surface uneven and streaky, but ive found it leaves the impression of weathered use.

    I can see that now that I've looked at the finished photos more closely...man, that is just a clean build. Looks like you did some weathering...around the panel lines as well? And you are right, it does give it a weathered look..I love it!
