Good corrections :clap2:

The resin tyres are great. Which paint did you use for the rubber tailwheel? How did it behave?

Thanks Quang

I used as little paint as possible. First a very light coat of Tamiya german grey and then slightly dirty gray . Finally matt coat of Gunze.

Rubber has not committed any rudeness for this time being

And the finish line.

A very successful kit, apart from a few minor issues.
Vinyl tires are not compatible with the quality of this kit
It's also the side rear windows that bother me the most. Being a separate piece takes the result away from perfection.  I think it would have been much better to have a design like Hasegawa's P-40s or to produce whole body transparent with these windows .

Anyway, my skill level allowed that much.

Maybe the second one would be better.
I will put more pictures in RFI soon.

Well, I have some other projects on my work bench which are not posted in WIP

A Ju-88A4 appears on the horizon as a major project

Fabulous, just fabulous, I'll be stealing as many ideas as possible from this thread when I build mine, probably (definately) not to the same standard though.

 

Cheers
