Last week I received this kit, a deal I couldn't refuse. Thank you Shane.  Everyone builds them and I decided to jump on the bandwagon. In terms of aftermarket I picked up Brassin wheels and Q-boost guns, also Ernie is generously sending resin props and I have a stashed seat belts from ......not sure, those plastic ones :).

Montex "motha russia" set it's on the way as well.

That was last week, however yesterday I finished the canvas. All what is left is adding the clamps and zipper handles.

Here is the picture of what I am after, US colours, probably no gun pods. Judging by the excessive flaking of the black colour , no primer was used at the North American production line.

We’ll soon have a squadron of 25’s at this rate, perhaps someone should photoshop them together at the finish......

Thank You Jari, I actually find this picture after the resin dried solid :) and hang it into Ernies build .

 

Big assemblies first, before I bleed my energy on the small detail. Lead shot from 16 ga. shells seems to fit the bill.
