With the horrible gunship primed and ready for paint I decided to get into my next build. The plan was to do a winter bird in my first attempt at a Dio for Nationals at Armistace. Unfortunately with my wifes Illness I am late getting started and doubt it will be finished in time. I am still hoping to make it to the nationals but that will also be dependent on how my wife is doing. Anyway... The kit looks good! It has a couple of quite nice figures in it which I was surprised by. I wasn't planning on using them but I am going to paint them up anyway.Good practice! I have made a start by adding some extra detail to the cockpit side walls.
I also have some Master Models Gun barrells and some RB seatbelts. Oh.. and a ZM 1/32 Kettenkrad..Not sure if that will be part of the build yet. I wont be using the Eduard self adhesive colour PE, So if anybody wants it let me know.
Sorry its been a while..Struggling to get bench time due to keeping an eye on the missus. Belts all done on the Stuka.. Added a little dirt and started putting the cockpit in so I can get the fuselage halves together.. I have also got primer and topcoat down on the Kettenkrad so I can continue with building that..Have to say I am enjoying this kit! Fits together pretty well.. few gaps and alignment issues but pretty minor stuff really.. Looking forward to getting the major assemblies together now! Anyways.. Have a nosey ...
So with the Gunship done its time to get back to this wee beastie which is Primer at the moment..Underside is next...a little preshading then top coat...The it will be Camo on the topside and decisions on if I will go winter camo..Im thinking yes...
Great build you have there.
I must say I like all the colours you have going on the underside. I think the red brown should look really good peeking through the paint.
I didn't think I would have thought to add the colours and would jyust have gone with the grey shading but looking at yours I will have to try it out with plenty of colour.
