Back from "Off-topic" to the next update....

 

 

All parts painted in interior green by LIfecolor, floors in brown with wooden decals on it, later washed with brown (floor) and black (walls), later drybrushed with aluminium (not the floor).

 

The chair received an upholstery with paper tissue and painted in beige. The belt is by eduard.

After the parts of the bomb bay were finished all are painted in interior green as well. After drying colored photo etched parts applied, then clear coat and washings.

 

The bombs were glued together, sanded and modifed with etched parts as well. After that the yellow stripes were painted and masked before painting the bombs in green. The bombs receive a white washing and some signs on it made by the pilots.

 

Die Bomben werden anschließend an ihren Halterungen platziert.

After having modifed the floor (removing the step) the floor was engraved in three parts, painted in brown and the wooden decals applied. After sealing the decals with matt clear coat it received a brwon washing.

 

Further details, etched parts installed and painted, later added the colored etched parts and details colored, then everything washed..... and ready for installing (further details follow when the parts are installed in one half of the fuselage)
