That's very nicely finished Johnny. Do I take it from your comments that it is a nice, stress free build?

Stunner. Lovely - particularly like the leaking from under the exhausts... Never managed to build up layers like that - using oil washer brushed on.... top layer always takes of those before.... may I ask how you went about it? 

 

Cracking Sturmovik!

EVERYONE knows the ultimate mojo restorer is a Spitfire. That said, cracking build. Lovely finish and realistically 'dirtied up'. I love slogan covered VVS aircraft...just wish I knew what the writing meant?!

I built the Italeri release a few years ago, being originally released by Accurate Miniatures , I found that it's a nice kit to put together. The real skill comes in the finish and what a cracker you've built- it's spot on 👍

Thank you, although it's a few years old now (I remember buying this in the Modelzone closing-down sale!) it was praised at the time for its clever engineering and parts fit. Needless to say it went together flawlessly and was a joy to build.

I just made sure the Future coat protecting the paintwork was perfectly dry, then added lines of AK Interactive engine dirt & grime which I went over with a cotton bud. A few more lines were added on top in the same way, which didn't affect the earlier stuff.

 

Thanks all for the positive comments.
