You'll have to sing Achmed the dead terrorists "Jingle Bombs" or Weird Al's Christmas at Ground Zero with tree ornaments like that.

I painted one silver and one gold.  I just did not like the overall look.  To me Christmas is Red/Green.  The red is Tamiya X7 thinned with MLT.  Gloss is Gunze super gloss from rattle can.  Have several 1/144's slated for green, TAM X5.  Maybe next year.  These colors will show up nicely in the tree.

 

BTW -  Most planes are 21st Century, I removed the landing gear and filled the wheel wells with putty.  The Spit is an Eduard and the Ju88 and Ju87 are kits i got my hands on at a model show years ago, I have no idea who mfgr is.  The quality is light years behind Eduard & Mark One.

Well that's very RESPLENDENT way to decorate a Tree.

That look quite glossy and STUNNING.

No tree ever looked like the one you're going to have!

:goodjob: Rick.

:wow:
