*1/32 nd Azur MS-406: "In the snow"

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My fourth and most likely last build in this GB...

406.jpg

This will be a very simple diorama-build.No figures will be added.Just a lonely MS 406 waiting on the grass.

But here's a riddle.

You will not see the upper camouflage colors. How can that be ?

No one having a guess ?

Well,the next picture of progress will give a hint.

Looking good Erwin, will it be unpainted... apart from the primer of course.

It will be fully painted. Once the dio is done the upper colors won't be visable anymore. :hmmm:

Situation so far.

I tried using the rudder decals but that didn't work so well. I will paint the rudder instead.

Still need to add some ropes to the cockpit cover to tie it down and the wingtip lights.

And then...Let it snow !!

That's come out brilliantly Erwin - and love the chalk idea! Do you need to 'fix' in place with anything?

Hi,

No need .

It falls down and stays nicely on the model.Just don't do any hard movements or it will slide off.
