This build is somehow doomed - I planned to complete it quick and easily but it takes longer and I get all sorts of self inducted troubles - airbrush spits with water, mismatching and torn decals, paint gets ripped off by masking tape etc. etc. etc. Still we go

Black gloss base for polished aluminium

MG is made from some etched stuff (Airwaves?)

Prop. I don't like the way it looks

Seat from the same photo etch was oversized - trimmed it to fit the cockpit

Primed

Preshaded

Painted, futured and decaled. Well - the decals do not match, so I unapplied fuselage decals and painted white and black areas

Adhesion is not great

Managed to sort the problems out

Looking really nice Pin. I'm always puzzled by that massive Airwaves seat too! :shrug:

Cheers

Some progress. I tried to imitate peculiar polishing pattern on metal parts - do not like the result at all

Inspired by Telford I'm moving on.

Rigging monoplanes is as exciting as rigging biplanes

Last touch - I have moved the barrel lower and added ammo belt, for which I have to cut an opening that was quite risky on nearly completed model
