My first real post here.

Finished this one a couple of months back.

I made life a bit difficult trying to replicate this aircraft.

Quite a bit of dispute whether it had a yellow tail or white.  Nose gun troughs were only described as "light" in the crash report, too.

Great kit to make & detail. Really enjoyed it.

You have worked wonders on the kit. Never would say it was 40 years old.

 

As an aside. The pilot was Werner Bartels and this aircraft (with him in it) was shot down over East Kent  and came to rest just down the road from me  near the railway line at St. Peters, Broadstairs.

"Just down the road from me"  

Yes, I sometimes forget this history stuff went on in our back yard...........

 

Fuselage crosses were smaller than standard, I believe, and the only ones I had were some 1/48s.  Slightly too small enough!

 

Thanks for your kind comments.

Very nice job from that old kit. It really was ahead of it's time back then wasn't it!? Lovely finish and subtle weathering too!

 

Cheers
