So much scope with these birds as far as variation and weathering! Are you sure one more will be enough? You may need two!

I think one more would be enough :lol: Would really like the birdcage.

I've just finished airbrushing on several coats of Alclad Flat Kote. Still need to add those antennas, but I won't handle it for the next 2 - 3 days as sometimes it takes a while for this product to fully cure.

I've also just sealed the decals in on the prop. I will probably finish that off tomorrow with some weathering and flat coat.

Awesome detail and seeing last few comments, looking forward to the next project :whistle: one day.

Applied a wash and flat coat to the prop last night.

Ready to move on to the next build... might give the workbench (aka dining table) a tidy up first. All of this mess was just from this build :blush:

Finished the prop off tonight by weathering with dust pigments and a stiff brush.


Also attached sliding section of canopy, antenna masts and 500lb bomb. All that's left to do now is attached the prop and the pitot tube on the outer wing.

Also tidied up the work space.

Now that it's tidy, I can't find anything when I need it :silly:

Put the finishing touches on this build before work. Hope to take some proper photos this weekend.
