Think this ones about done now, no real drama's getting her finished just took me a while to get round to adding the Flightpath RBF tags, i really recommend these although they are a bugger to paint in this scale :hypnotised:

Simply excellent Rich :clap2: . All the extras must have made this a bit pricey (I am a fine one to talk!). Hope to see this one at SMW 09.

Cheers

Beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous :thumbsup: .

I quit, formally and happily. There's no way I can come even remotely close to that. Between you and the other builds, I'm just a sad hack...

Excellent work :).

Rich that's a flippin' marvel. As Iain said, it's a great capture of the look and feel of the real thing.

Thanks for the kinds words guys :blush: I 'm gonna call this one finally finished at last. :yahoo:

The Verlinden Airfield Revetment was a plesure to paint as I've never really done this kind of thing before i'm quite chuffed with the result. It was painted with Tamiya, Gunze and Vallejo Acrylics then weathered with Tamiya smoke, oils and Promodellers washes and finally used Verlinden grasses for the erm..grass and a couple of their Airfield signs for the doors.

The figures (P.P. Aeroparts), GPU, Towbar (Flightpath)and Ladders (Verlinden Tornado update set)received various Humbrol colours.

On to the Piccies...
