Well, I've been on the scrounge for markings for this, and people have been extremely helpful, so I thought I'd better post it up!

Here's the state of play so far. Main colours are on, and I'm currently doing detail painting and weathering. Looks awful in this photo though... :banghead:

Main colours are Citadel's Catachan Green, Tamiya Dark Green, and the underside is sprayed with Halford's Mercedes Brilliant Silver. The Dark Green is too brown, to be honest, so I may lighten it a little with a touch of yellow.

And here she is, finished.

This is of course based on one of SPINNERS' excellent Strike Fighters profiles, though it's not an exact copy. A fun little build, though the intake took a lot of sanding and filling to get smooth, and I botched a few things along the way. Still, I'm pleased with how it turned out. :)

Many thanks to those who kindly supplied me with Finnish markings for this build - I hope this build has lived up to your expectations! :cheers:

Lovely!  Just wish mine had turned out so good!
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone. :) I'm quite pleased with the way it came out, I must say. Looks pretty good in the cabinet.
