Exelent job,nothing wrong.My great respekt to you.
PS.For exhaust pipes better use dry pigmets(rust) over black paint(looking more realistic).One more time - BEST MODEL.

Congrats on finishing Your bird. I like the chipping very much. My tests with hair spray did not worked very well. maybe I will give it a try with Your method!

TADAAAAA.Complete.Few words - first one Hasegawa kit- perfect,no need an extra job(sanding,filling gap and etc),very good small part detailing.panel line - thin and accurate.So only few days for complete models.Second - I'm use new weathering techiniques for me.Vallejo medium chipping - easy for use.But one big minus - too hard control size of chips.In final model looking too beat-up.Mmmm Ok it's last days war,JAAF not have supply anymore.
Thank's to all for comment.

And finally done:


Two more pictures are in gallery.

It's twin engined bomber, but quite large which made photographing more challenging than usually. Anyway fun build and got chance to try canopy with pre-painted frames: the kit came with those and normal clear parts.

Thanks for the campaign.

I'm sure I am making kit collectors either very angry or very happy at my kit choice.

I looked though the kit pieces and noticed some stuff. First that I had painted the landing gear in what looks like Flat Metallic Grey. My Luftwaffe senses said "shouldn't that be RLM Grey?". I looked at the instruction and above the "paint here" symbol, no color was mentioned. But then I remembered something about Frog kits: so I turned the box over.



On further inspection, I noted sink marks on the wings and fuselage wherever there was a locator pin or hole. Also a long sink mark in the flaps. However, I don't remember seeing any ejector pin marks. Also the way the rudder is done (both halved on one side of the fuselage), there will be a discrepancy on the other side for the rudder line.

I may do some scratch-building as there is nothing in the radiator baths under the nacelles.

Good golly Miss Molly Gary!

True to your profile, and you've pulled one out that I thought didn't exist anymore!

My Monogram/Revell kit is but a kid compared to yours! Thank you so much for making me feel so much younger than I am! Ha! I will follow and cheer you on the whole way!

Best of luck, and have fun with it!

Good lord Gary! A Frog kit! Awesome! I grew up building Frog kits they were slightly better detailed than their Airfix equivalents in some cases. Looking forward to this build Gary and seeing just how it turns out for you.

This will be my entry in this campaign.




This will be built straight out of the box. No improvements or corrections will be made to the kit.

Pasi: The chipping looks very nice. How have You done it?



Thanks. It's metallic paint (probably Vallejo's Natural Steel) applied with size 0 brush.
