This is Special Hobby's 1/32 scale V-1. A lovely little kit, the usual lo-run moulding features, a bit of etch and a good decal sheet. All paint by Mission Models with a final wash of Flory Black Weathering fluid. Very fast and easy to build and paint. The rear end of the fuselage and engine was assembled and painted in one factory, the explosive section in another and the nose guidance system at a third, all painted where manufactured. Like most munitions, they would only come together as a complete unit prior to launch, being assembled and adjusted in the local bomb dump. Hence the mottle cammo on the back end, the linear colour demarcation on the explosive section and a freehand wavy colour separation on the nose. Some areas were treated to a very thin wash of Mission Models Tyre Black to change the RLM83 and 76 on some sections to emphasise the disparate part manufacturing.
Well i figured i better jump in here, I assume this is the right place to post, it's not an airplane but it is large! I thought i would post some pic's of my 3D Printed V-1. About 90% is printed and the other 10% is by hand, She measure's a tic over 21". I generally don't Doc my build since most are for private request(I need there permission), But i guess i could start doing it for my personal builds. Any questions feel free to ask!
