On a rare occasion I do finish a model. This time it came out like that:

Full story can be found here http://www.kampfgruppe144.com/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3271. Short story: Panel lines (Matchbox-style) were removed, some brass bits from upcoming Shelf Oddity set added. And then there was miserable process of filling and sanding and filling and sanding and filling and sanding and filling and sanding and... which seemed to have no end. But finally I got to dust off my airbrush. Metal parts are AK Xtreme Metal (easy and foolproof). Kit decals turned out to be excellent (save for NACA tail band), panel lines were reinstated using pencil and shaky hand and this is it.

Very nice indeed one of the best finished examples I've seen of this model. I would say all of that filling and sanding and sanding and filling .... etc, was worth it in the end - top job, well done!! :thumbsup::coolio:

I just love experimental aircraft!!

I would never have thought that was 1/144 if you hadn't said! Nice job, and as others have said, love the presentation. You just need to scratch-build an RC transmitter for your chap to hold.
