Let's start 2019 with a bang: Fi103 / V1 Buzz bomb

I was very delighted when Special Hobby announced the V1 in 1/32 scale. The only other option in our beloved scale is the Profimodeller resin kit which has a very steep price (€60,-) for such a small kit. The Special Hobby kit can be picked up for a mere €22,-. So I immediately bought this little kit when a had the option. After the Ju388 I needed a quick build; simple and without aftermarket. This little kit was the perfect choice. I've build and painted it about a 5 or six evenings. 

 

Plastic is nice and good to work with. Some of the holes for the locating pins on one half of the fuselage where closed. I choose to cut away the pins instead of opening the holes. In the end I had a very little step between the fuselage halves which needed a tiny amount of filler and sanding to get right. If I had taken a little more care glueing the halves, this would not have been necessary. The kit feautures some very restraint but lovely detail so care needs to be taken to avoid sanding it all away. The kits decals (yes the germans loved stenceling there vehicles) are tiny and have the tendency to roll over themselves. Because of this a few decals never made it to the model and some where cut short. Other then that, I can recommend this kit for everyone as an in between build or to get your mojo back. 

 

Painting was done on a base of Mr surfacer 1500 black. Paint is from MRP and the washes from AK interactive Paneliner series.
