    Just finished this today. I only airbrushed the US Tac Green on, everything else was hand painted including the camo lines. Ran out of dullcote and buying more tomorrow so dont worry about the gloss :lol: [ If anyone wants to see the dullcote in effect just say it and i'll take some more with it on tomorrow ]. Kit was alright, soft plastic, gaps, you know revell.. :rolleyes: Enjoy, comments and suggestions always welcome. [Canopy might be painted]

    Me too mull, looks like its ready to go. I dont have anything with photoshop or anything because I think a model looks better in this world, not a rendered backround. Call me old school

    Looks good, and should look great with the matt coat on. I think it's worth masking and painting the canopy frame though.
    You'll find the current Group Build in the 'Start to finish Builds' section, which should give you an idea of how things are working on this first one. You can't miss it, they're all Luftwaffe! There's also a bit more background in the 'Unternehmen Luftbrucke' thread, which is the name for the first GB, meaning 'Operation Airbridge', as it's a bridge to members across the globe. The next GB will be Pacific Theatre of Operations, and will start at the end of April/early May, as the current GB ends. More info will be posted re photos and 'rules' soon. Meanwhile, if you've any questions, just ask!
    Terry.

    You should finish up on the canopy frame, but overall it's a great build.
