Looks lovely!  What technique did you use for the paint chipping at the wing roots?

 

It looks very good and in scale!  I'm guessing a colored pencil but don't know!

 

 

Thank you

I have used silver pencils for the paint chipping. Maybe it does not look too realistic but it can simulate chipping effect.

Hi Tolga,

Your build has brought back many memories for me.   This particular aircraft was once stored in the workshop I started my apprenticeship in.   I was gobsmacked when I first saw it and I spent many, many hours studying it.   I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that I also spent some time sitting in the cockpit with the canopy closed, immersing myself in the experience, so to speak.   Amazingly, in 1983, her fuel tanks still had a sizeable amount of liquid in them.   I assume there was some sort of inhibiting agent in them.   Interestingly, the guys who were involved in the partial restoration of this aircraft discovered a 50 Cal bullet wedged firmly in one of the wing spars - but that's another story.   The real aircraft now sits in the Australian War Memorial in Canberra and is presented in its original WWII finish, albeit, with some post-war markings carefully wet-sanded away to reveal the original German paint scheme.   Your model is a beautiful rendition of this amazing aircraft.

 

Kind regards,

 

Wayne
