Although I always expect the very best from you Eric, I think I like this model better than any of your other builds.  To me, it nails both modeling construction skill and superb painting and weathering, that replicates a real aircraft so very well.  Congrat's on a 10/10 model!

 

Cheers,

Chuck

Brilliant looking build. Will be saving these photos for future reference. 

 

Very nice finish, worn but not over the top worn. 

 

What is your technique for wing root weathering?  

 

Cheers

Collin

 

Hi Collin, I use the `hairspray method' to simulate the worn down paint and then airbrush a very thin mix of Zinc Chromate paint around the edges of the worn areas, and then use a Prismacolour silver pencil to add additional scratches.

Excellent finish Eric. I know that Hasegawa P-40N tail fit isn't the best but you'd never know from your end result.

 

Hi Ade, thanks. This was one area that I placed additional work into as I know it is an area that people familiar with the kit would look for being a known problem area.

 

Cheers, 

 

Eric.

Well, that really is superlative, especially like the red earth on the tyres, and the painted on look of the nose art, I know it is indeed painted on, but it's not heavily done, just subtle, and on scale.
