Hi Guys,

 

just finished this one, it was built for a GB on another forum.

 

It's only the 2nd aircraft I've built, so plenty of mistakes and still a lot to learn. :)

I wish I'd spent more time on the decals, I think I could of done a better job. And there are a few seam lines that I missed.

 

The paint design I found online, it's called a Flipper scheme. I think it was a experimental winter camo.

I wanted to do something a bit different, and the GB was for aircraft in winter camo, so I thought this fit the bill.

If that's only your second model a/c build, I can't start to imagine what No. 20 will look like...deeply impressive work and a natural talent you have there. Keep it up!

Very nice work there.

Did you engrave the raised panel lines? I think the kit is a combination of recessed and raised, right?

Cool paint job!

Yes it's mixture of raised and recessed, but no I didn't engrave the raised ones. That's actually a technique I learned about after it was undercoated so something I will try on the next one.

Nice scheme, great build.

For a 2nd aircraft build, can't see much wrong with that. Only thing is wingtip nav light colours should be switched.

That's a staggering finish for only your second model, I'll be extremely happy if my second looks half as good as that. Am a big fan of both the Hog and the winter scheme...will build one myself one day.

One question - did you use an airbrush or hairy stick for the camouflage?

Airbrush for all the paint, even the yellow bands on the ordance, which took forever to mask and unmask.

I can't see any mistakes Mr Bowcat? Looks excellent to me and that scheme is a joy. I now have a new idea for a future build... :thumbsup:
