Really a super looking aircraft! I especially like the weathering on the nose where you dirtied up the white. Looks like an in-service jet.

Thanks, I prefer a "dirty birdy," and shy away from builds that are too clean. I also weathered the underside with pigments.

Very nice Starfighter Bill, the first thing I noticed was the painted over windows - sometimes you're just drawn to these things - looking forward to the re-shoot!

:whistle:

Great show, Bill.  Love what you've done.  I imagine it took forever and a day to place those stencils.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

The stencils take more work than the painting which is pretty easy with a Marineflieger aircraft.

Always a pleasure to see another Cacciatore Stellare

Grazie! The kit has abundant Italian markings (not surprising, since it's Italeri).

The weathering is first rate - although "factory fresh" looking models have a place, they are only representative of a brand-new aeroplane.

 

Yours looks like an aeroplane that flew in Europe weather at 1,500 mph.

Bill indicated he accidentally left the paint masks on those sections.
