Hello dear friends.
I want to show you a model A-26 from Monogram. The model has undergone modifications to the wing and fuselage are covered with aluminum foil, all hatches are made from foil, I have been re-made ​​landing wheel buy. Engines from Vector with a small modification. Identification marks are painted with masks. When painting the model I used Testors.

Sorry for my English.

Wow what a splendid model! Excellent work on the metal finish!

I am curious about the ailerons: They seem the same width top and bottom of the wing: Is it possible they were not frise ailerons in real life?

Hi Alexey

Wow! That is a beautiful build of a kit that we don't see nearly often enough these days! It deserves a place on the front page.

Alternatively, could you write us an article on how you work with foil? It's a technique that many modellers are wary of trying, so a how-to would be really useful.

All the best

Hello Rowan.
Thank you for your comment. I'll try to write an article about my work on the models and will send it to you. I promise the next model ( P-61 from Monogram and 190 from Eduard) I will build on the forum.
I now have almost no time to build models: a lot of work on the master-models
