    Hi All We finally got to camouflage, I immediately say that the result is not the one hoped for; First I sprayed the RLM 76 , then I just blew it off with white in some areas The difficult came after, spraying the RLM 74, following the camouflage of the instructions, it was difficult; The horizontal snake pattern is very random, even in historical photos........ It is most likely that I have not used the right amount of thinner with the color, but I did a lot of tests and the result is this. With black it was all easier, before Gunze's H77 (tire black) on all undersurfaces, then the same color with addition of dark gray, and finally some areas with a mix of black and blue H54, always Gunze. I'm not really happy with camouflage, but I hope that with exhaust fumes, decals and washings, the appearance changes a bit better. Goodnight Ettore

    Hello people I've added other parts to end the assembly: the radiator blades, neutral ailerons, and lowered flaps And now is ready for coloring, but first a little pre shading: only black lines on lower surfaces and black lines plus white to fill the panels After lower preshading, I realized i was wrong, because under will be totally black.... All foto are from mobile phone... Ok, now a little pause and I'll start with RLM 76 A nice evening to All Ettore

    Hi All Today is Italian Republic National day, so we do not work, but we modelers are always on the piece; I took advantage of it to work on the fuselage, in particular I fill with putty various parts on tail with Mr Surface 1000 Then, with Gunze laquer thinner I cleaned the excesses In the wheel bay I have mounted Quickboost pieces more similar to reality Now the wings and the fuselage are ready to be glued In the cockpit I have detailed the gun sight with the lenses, in the end I will add the power cable (which I forgot) and the lights on the inner frames After joining wings and fuselage, I used tape to adjust the right dihedral angle wings And this is what we have today !
