Hi there wingy thingy people!

I usually model ground or sea targets, but once in a while I do a wingy thingy. Got this one real cheap off the net (half started, wings were glued together but not aligned, but I was able to save it...) and made an OOB build just to try my hand on a plane. Eduard OOB, painted with Tamiya Acryllics and weathered with a wash and pastels for the black stains on the cowl.

I appreciate any feedback!









Cheers!
Stefan

Stephen,
Very impressive save. Sure looks like a perfect OOB build.

I agree it's a very nice OOB build. And, the weathering (or relative lack of it) appeals to me. I finish many this way.

Thanks for the kind words, guys. Yeah I could have gone for some (more) weathering, but somehow I liked it the way it was. Next time maybe...

Sure have a few more wingy things in my stash and it won't be the last.

Cheers!
Stefan
