Final shots of my Thunderflash. Tanmodel is a relatively new model company from Turkey and this is their first 1:48 aircraft. Company has a promising future and they have couple of nice projects coming like 1/32 Northrop F-5A. This was a joy to build this kit, it has nice fit and several options. I chose Luftwaffe version. Hope you like it, enjoy!

Wow! Excellent. Your weathered NMF almost makes me believe it's not painted.

Looks like a very well-used bird.

Cemal, REALLY NICE Thunderflash ! Love all of the colors and very, very good weathering too. You have made this plane look old & heavily used. Are those kit decals ?
Good work & thank you for sharing !

OMG!!

The kit for a 1st production effort looks like a real winner. another one I just gotta get ASAP.

Cemal, as for your build, the NMF and painting is dead on perfect. Same for the decaling, as one would have a very hard time deciding if they're decals or painted with masks. Your weathering really does emulate a well used operational aircraft.

Yes they are kit decals. I only painted black and red sections on the wings, although the kit had decal options for them as well.

Can you shed some light on how you weathered your model? It looks really nice!

Tan Model has some interesting kits coming out! It's nice to see a subject that it not been kitted very often.
