Welcome back.

Thats one heck of a masking job.  Well done, nice build.

hi Ericr

it's a mixed inspiration from German planes and Gekko Graphics F104

We seriously need a 'gobsmacked' emoji. That is one lovely bit of work!

I finished my first model this year, so got you some pictures. Once again I didn't managed to reproduce the painting option from the box...

Model: P-35 Spanish Civil war Condor legion
Brand: Academy 1/48 + eduard photoetch
Decals: print scale

Cockpit is enhanced with photoetch




some paneling for the underside


and preshading for the uperside


MRP paints (a first), amazing paints!!!




and after the plane fell 3 times, the cockpit had to be broken open twice to remove glue fumes on the canopy and a few lost pieces had to be replaced in scracht... tadaaaaaaaaaa







comments welcome, glad I'm done with this one, realy didn't go as expected

later all!

Love the camouflage
