Kanonenvogel Stuka--Finished!

Recommended Posts

As I mentioned, Hasegawa provides 1/32 templates:

...which were used to cut the masks:

So I managed to complete the camouflage and even the yellow theater markings (I do not like painting yellow--it goes where you don't want it, and is tricky to spray evenly where you do want it, even over paint). In any case, I am pleased so far. Now I will focus on applying the markings, painting the canopy, and working on the winter coat.

 

Cheers,

 

Tom

Lovely! It should look a treat with the winter camouflage applied - love winter camouflage! One of the things that's always attracted me to Eastern Front subjects, both Axis and Soviet.

Wow, nice paint job, I love the subtle variations in tone.

Thank you very much! I heavily preshaded with black, but I'm not sure how it will end up with the winter coat.

 

Cheers,  Tom

Loops amazingly like my own Stuka I did a couple years back. If I can find a link I'll post it for comparison.

That would be great--I am curious to see how this will end up after the winter coat, but I know that Tom Cleaver did a spatless build with this kit and left it in RLM 70 and 71.

 

Cheers,  Tom

Jason,

 

Thanks, I appreciate it! My plan is to use enamels over the acrylic clearcoat, so I will have room to correct if necessary.

That's a great paint job, Tom! It's almost a shame to cover it up again.

No kidding! This is truly outstanding.

Excellent paint job! See, this is where I'd chicken-out and decide not to do the winter overpaint. But I hope you do the winter scheme.

Kevin,

 

Thank you! In a way, this will be two builds, and after I add a few of the last add-ons I will take a few more photos before changing the look.

 

Cheers, Tom
