Very nicely done - particularly like the very neat masking of the OD.

 

Cheers

Looks great - love the cockpit detail.

I too am interested in the car - is it a kit?  A diecast perhaps?

Anyway, the whole display looks sharp.

:goodjob:

Now that is finally a step in to right direction. 

Theis kit needs replacement guns as the desert cries for water.

Also the rivets are another must have.

As for Eduard PE, I think that its as good as invisible. 

Try painting various panels in different shade of metal.

Dear Friends

 

Thank you for your kind words!  The car is a kit from ACE.  Some of you may know that they require quite a bit of fettling, but they come out alright.

 

I was interested in your comment Josip about using different metal shades.  I did do this around the engine cowlings (as this heats and gets discoloured on the real thing) but this did not come out very clearly.  Looking at many photos of the real aircraft in WWII you do not see clear variations in metal shades (unlike with some jets) but you certainly can see heavy weathering around the engines.

 

Full marks to Airfix for the undercarriage bays by the way, even though the punter can't see them!

Brilliant.

 

The resin replacement 50 cals are a huge improvement - worst part of the kit in my opinion.

Excellent build and photography, Andrew!  Those clear transparencies help show off the nicely done interior.

 

Cheers,

One downside I forgot to mention is the rendering of the engines are rather shallow.  In this case I added my own push rods to the cylinders (thank goodness this is 9 cylinder and not 18) and ignition leads
