So now I've got Steve Miller Band playing in my head ("I'm a midnight toker...") and the graphics from the Beatles "Yellow Submarine" (movie) in my visual memory.

 

I'd love to see more about the construction (conversion) process!

Fantastic build and paintwork!

You'll probably have a few saying it looks "too worn-out", but I'm quite a fan of the heavily-used look.

Better than too pristine, IMHO.

It is a super model. Weathering overdone? Perhaps in comparison to the well-known photo of the aircraft

But perhaps not two weeks later.

 

But one problem: The spinner is not red; probably white.

When i'm building model I always mix weathering from many photo sources, not 1 particular. There is second photo which is showing same aircraft, when order to repaint all planes spinners (maybe for recogition purposes) to red colour was executed
