Greek Pzl P.24G - 1/48 mirage Hobby

Recommended Posts

Dear friends,

 

After the Avro Anson 

 

another example of the WWII Greek Airforce. It is the Polish-made PZL P.24G in 1.48 by Mirage Hobby. The kit has some difficulties, namely it is a challenge to fit the engine in the cowling, and get the exhausts right. But in general it went OK. I used Gunze and AKAN colors  and Microscale's mat varnish. Sorry for the photo quality, I try my best but...   

 

Hope you like it,

Very nice! I just landed in Athens and will be in Thessaloniki this week too, so I just have to praise this model! Very nice :). An unusual subject in unusual marks (for the type).

Lovely work!

 

How did you weather the panel lines?

John, nothing special. It is old good panel wash with dark brown enamel. But the corrugated surfaces made it a bit difficult.

edit: add to this a light post-shading of random panels

I wish you a nice stay at my home city. Many great places to go out, if you have the time. Obviously, I m a proud Thessalonian, but the last years I live in France.
