Here are the photos of my latest, the 1/72 Airfix He-111 modelled in a Battle of Britain scheme. The kit goes together pretty well and the only things to watch out for are the fit of the wheel bays in the intakes and the fuselage windows. It's got the Eduard interior extras which look lovely but unless you look closely they're pretty hard to see. I also riveted the whole aircraft (which I think was worth the effort) and re-built the wing Pitot from a blunted safety pin and bit of sprue. The paints are airbrushed Tamiya and Mr Color acrylics (I think the Mr Color RLM acrylics look great here) and I've used a combination of Xtradecal BoB and box transfers. The slightly weathered effect came mostly from preshading but I also added some streaks and stains with white, black and brown artists oils. Finally, the white-pink bars on the wing and tail are based on the photo at the end where it appears that the Luftwaffe were about as a good at masking carefully as I am! The RFI is here: Thanks to everyone who looked in and helped along the way, enjoy! Sam
