Eduard 1/48 P-39 Airacobra in Soviet colours


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

Several years ago I started building Eduard's 1/48 P-38 kit but never finished it. Recentely I decided to pick up this kit again.

A cockpit set by Pavla and an engine from Quickboost were used for this build. Some cutting has to be done to accomodate the engine. I also made a support to make sure the engine wouldn't move after the fuselage was closed.

The model was painted with Mr Hobby paints over Alclad black primer. The walkways and red and white stripes were masked and painted on.

The kit decals were used and weathering was done with Abteilung 502 oilpaints and pastel powders.

 

Thank you for watching.

René

Superb job René. Great scheme. I especially like the way the green has been applied, the faded effect is very realistic.:like:
