My old Binks airbrush can't quite do those narrow scribblings, but it sure looks good on yours!

Thank very much, Craig and Chris.

Here there are new photos, perhaps more clear.

Great!  Lovely squiggles! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
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.

I was sort of hoping an Ho229 V8 was powered by a pair of 426 Hemi's - however I'm definitely not disappointed, really like the 229, one day I will get around to building one. Great model, great airbrush work.

Thanks Ian, excuse me; i thought the V8 never existed. I only wanted to make a whif version. The kit is the model of PM Models -Horten Ho 229 V7-, with a very little modification.

Do you know the real Horten Ho 229 V8?.

I agree on both counts.  And there are quite a few whiffed Ho229s on this forum - maybe time they had their own thread.  Or even a GB?  ;D ;D

Paco, Ian is just having fun with the term V8 as in V8 engine, specifically the Chrysler Motors Corp. 426 cu in Hemispherical head engine:
