This was a quickie filler build intended to distract me when things got complicated on the Wingnut Snipe, the only AM were the Quickboost barrels for the nose guns and dollar bill seat belt extensions down to the bottom cushion. I used Montex masks and kit decals for the stencils, i made a few minor mistakes in choosing versions for the plane I built, but I'm OK with it, its not going to win any shows. I really goofed up not realizing that Revell put panel lines in odd places and I missed filling them. 

 

This was the plane that inspired me.

Love it!! That's some really great mud. Is that paint, or some kind of effect in a bottle?

I used Tamiya paint, the green was XF81 and brown was XF68 with a few drops of XF55 added.

I mixed flory brown wash with sienna pigment to make the mud, it’s completely water washable if I didn’t like it.

I love it, looks 100% to me. You are really being way too self critical.
