85sqn posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - AircraftHi Folks, here's my Wildcat. With thanks to the guys over on this thread: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235025518-wildcat-v-colour-conundrum/&tab=comments#comment-2797901 It's the Tamiya kit with the outer wing guns sanded and removed. Eduard seat belts added and sprayed with my interpretation of ANA colours 610, 603 and 613 using Xtracrylix over a black base with some light YZC chipping. Self made masks were used for markings and just some decals from the spare box. After glossing I used some Winsor and Newton oil paint for washes. I went with the sky undersides as it seems alot of colour photos showed it rather than the light grey which may have been used. The aircraft was based on HMS Atheling for a short period whilst Op Councillor was conducted in the Indian Ocean on June 10th 1944. Although, not really much happened other than to show escort carriers working alongside fleet carriers didn't really work due to the slower speed of the escort carrier. Thanks for looking Nick
