Here's my 1/48 HS-129 by Esci (not the newest or best, but it was a 'wear and weathering' experiment)

 

Hope you like ...

I would say the experiment came off very well. Very realistic to me. Well done.

Wonderful 129. :clap2: ... even though they were supposedly underpowered they still look mean.

I always love to see the old kits. Brings back good memories. You did a great job on this.

I particularly like the weathering effect on the engine nacelles. Very good worn-off paint effect .

You've done a bang-up job on that old ESCI kit!  I have one too, built years ago.  I'm a bit embarrassed to show her now that I've seen this one!  Very nice indeed!! 🍻

 

As an aside-I entered two tank models in a contest some years ago.  The contest was also open to WWII ground-attack aircraft.  On a whim, I entered my 129.  As luck would have it, it was displayed next to a Hasegawa version of the Hs-129, built by one of central Texas most accomplished modelers, Milton Bell.  Oh, man.  His plane made my bird look like a push-toy that might emit sparks when pushed along the floor!  

 

In fact, this is his contest entry:

Thanks everybody, This was a quick, fun build just for the purpose of playing with the painting effects. I think I learned a bit from this that I will use on my future builds. 

 As they say, one step forward ...
