A very cute little early jet. The Revell kit was really great, especially for such a cheap price.

I had an issue (my fault) when i glued the fuselage : the day after i glued and puttyed it, i noticed that the front wheel bay / cockpit was not very straight. So i had to reopen it. It was not very easy with all the resin parts glued with CA. I have even broken some parts of the fuse (the CA was stronger than the plastic). But one or two days later, everything was ok, puttyed, sanded smooth and ready to paint.

 

I've used an eagle decals sheet. I've painted her with RLM 81 and 83, following the instructions. But i regret that, as the contrast between 81 and 83 is not very good. I should have used RLM 82 instead of either the 81 or the 83, and so the result would have been more contrasted and lighter. The underside color is a custom mix in order to make the poor quality RLM76 of the end of the war, with a lot of variant for the same color.

Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

That looks great, nice attention to detail, and weathered just enough as they were new aircraft, must get a move on with mine !

 

Cheers

Well done that man!

 

Great finish and the harness certainly adds to the overall effect in the cockpit.

 

Thanks for sharing.

HI 

What could be more said ? Stunning job ! with a lot of tiny details here and there, I like it  ......An other master piece from Mr Zero .. as usual ......one thing about the green color , maybe the lighter one could be gently highlighted by adding some shadows where the sun hit the wing, or at the leading edge  , that could make this green color more " alive"  ........If you know what I mean . That's my 2 euros opinion 

bye Alain
