That should look good in the Turkish markings.

Hi All

It's been a while since my last update so here goes.......

Decals applied and rudder attached; the decals settled down nicely with an application of Microsol. I messed up one of the rudder crescents so had to take another from the sheet

And a view of the underside.......

And to complete the set, now the side view.....

The decals were all sealed with a coat of Tamiya clear gloss and so the next step was a bit of weathering. I started with the underside oil staining using watercolours; finding period photo's of the underside proved a bit harder than I thought it would be but hopefully I have not overdone it?

I need to tone down the top side decals as they do look a little stark against the lightly faded paintwork so I will do that with some Tamiya weathering powders before it all gets sealed with another coat of varnish, this time in matt to flatten the finish and tie it all together.

I have the undercarriage doors all painted and the wheels done so I hope over the Easter weekend to get it close to finished.

Thanks for looking and have a great Easter everyone!

Best regards

Tim.

Very nice work, the paint work is very impressive. Using those stencils you made for the camo pattern really paid off.

Love the oil streaks too, looks the part.
