Looking great tiking!!

 

I like how it looks with the extra length gained by moving the side bits forward. Gives it a real sleek speedy look!

OK. here we go again guys. We are nearly at completion of this build. Not much left to do. I still have weathering and more details to add, not much but you all know how it is. Once you start on the details, one cannot seem to stop. :) You just seem to want more. And you all know how much of a detail freak I am. :)

Anyways, I have now painted the entire model, at the least the pod section or cockpit section black. The Kit offers several camo schemes and black was one of them. So I opted for this color. Of course the scheme is slightly different than the kits but I had to deviate from it. You know. Never an original kit, when it comes to building a kit. :)

Below are small details I decided to add after the model was painted.  I used decals both from the kit and other plane kits I have in my 'box of tricks'

More detailing parts. This part will be placed at the front of the pod:

Below is the painted pod without the engines mounted. The skull decal was a big issue. I had to slice the upper decal portion in sections to get the decal to fit and sit properly over the dome of the cockpit, properly. I was not 100% satisfied with the quality of the decals. Many got messed up or did not site right:

I glued the first engine(right one), in place. As you can see, its weathered a little. I still have the left one to weather. I weather each one before gluing it in place. Since this pic was taken I have already repainted another section of the left engine, which is not glued in place yet. But so far the overall-look, looks very promising from my point of view.

Here is the almost completed Falke I have 'moded'. Just a little more touch-up here and there. Hope you guys like the results. Now I can begin to concentrate on another truck diorama.

Fantastic work! It looks stunning in black. Definitely up to your usual high standards with the weathering.
