Thanks for all your support and encouragement during the course of this build. If truth be told, there are one or two small places where I'm still to put a dab of varnish, but I'll attend to that later on.
And here she is in all her glory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

Excellent finish, Allan! The camo scheme and markings work remarkably well on an SE-5 and your masterful painting of the wooden struts and prop really tie it all together!

LOOKS GOOD!   Great finish, especialy with the varnished wooden struts.

And the camo works quite well on that background.

We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.


Thanks for your kind comments.
I was impressed with the smooth way Tamiya enamel in the little square bottle went through the airbrush. I used it for the green on the wings.
Also, Xtracrylix thinned with a little warm water and the Australian version of Future produced a mixture that sprayed well, adhered well and resulted in a satiny, hard finish.


Nice finish!

Love the concept and the execution is exceptional :thumbsup:
Get this Cheese to sick bay!


Awesome Job :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: You did Better than I would have with That Tricky a Camo Scheme!!!!!!!! Keep up the Great Work!!!!!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :cheers:Dan
