Looks stunning Thomas, the airbrush work on the camo scheme is top notch.

Thanks guys - very much appreciated

 

Now it will rest for a couple of days to cure the paint totally before I start correcting the errors.

This is looking fantastically well.  Especially considering what you had to start with.

I have a special ceremony that I sometimes practice... When a model is done I ceremoniously throw out the box... today I threw out the most tattered box I have around, cause I finished the Ki-45

 

I just checked, in 3 months it's been 5 years since i started it, and what a journey. On the shelf for many periods, but never given up. And now, with the ZM Ki-45 coming I had to finish. More presently, I have a contest tomorrow so I wanted to bring it there.

 

Since I posted the last time only painting, weathering and final details has been done. Gotta say I've been dragging my behind, but eventually pulled myself together.

 

So am I happy? Yes, definately and not just because it's done. Could it be better? Yes without a doubt, but  I have a feeling that finishing a vac is drawing a line in the sand and saying no more, rather than having fixed everything. This is as good as it gets...

 

Hope you enjoy - I will have a friend make some better photo's soon and do a real Ready for Inspection post

That's brilliant Thomas - doubly so as I know what you started with - and I gave up on mine about 20 years ago!
