Although I love fighters more than anything, I had to find out about the "new tool" Airfix. Prior to this, the last Airfix kit I knew of came in a bag, and hung on a peg at the store. And...they were a bright sky blue plastic.
I always wanted to do the smiling Stuka in the picture:
What color(s) would you call that bomb?
Thanks to NG Models I can:
It's a beautiful decal sheet. Also, NG Models makes some nicer resin wheels to go with the kit. Although the kit has the clever option of weighted or in-flight wheels, the tread patterns are rather balloon-ish looking.
I did some color modulation with the airbrush to give a slight sense of fading. As I intend this to be a Sitkrieg bird, I'm not going to do much more weathering.
I tried modulation on the underside, too. No idea how dirty I should make the belly.
So...seal it up...decals... Pin wash...and matte coat to go.
Thanks for looking!
