  • Stencils on the picture (plastic 0.2 mm) are those used in front of the plane, the holes are drilled with a drill 0.3mm. Several passages (7 or 8?) Airbrush are needed to obtain enough rivets marked. As it dries very quickly this is done quickly. The smoother side of the stencil is brought in contact with the flank of the aircraft.
  • The transparent plate used to assemble the windshield with the rest of the pod to form a pretty solid set.
  • On the transparent plate I plan to add the trap made of plastic sheet. That of the photo is a test.
  • Paints: I used the colors offered by Wingnutwings in their kit: Tamiya XF58 and 68 without adding color.
  • The support is tinkered with brass tubes. The gun comes from "Gaspatch"
  • The slide of the gun is stuck. The amounts of the windshield are painted. The two glass traps are placed in clear plastic window on the first (the one below). They are almost finished.

Thank you.Fishing wire for the wing. The others are plastic stretched. The flat ones are evergreen plastic sheets cut into strips.

Interesting that I was aware of the recoil-less small canon but not the aircraft itself! Amazing work, truly! May I ask for more information on how you made your T handle fire extinguisher? Almost every one of my 1/35th military US vehicles is missing its' Pyrene fire extinguisher.

Thank you! T handle fire extinguisher is two pieces of plastic, one stretched, the other flat glued together. The shape of the flat part is made with the scalpel, the ends rounded with the sandpaper (if I remember correctly ). Regards.
