    Hey guys :)

    I have been waiting for many parts, paint etc. for different builds. So I decided it'd be best to keep my mind occupied with a cheap kit.... the Lindberg I got for I think 3 dollars. Kit is VERY inaccurate, VERY simple but, that is not what I am worrying about this build. Just a flak/fighter damaged Ju-87.

    Theere are bullet holes around the gunners area (Will be more visible when paint goes on) and the right stabilizer has a giant chunk taken out from flak as well as dive flaps and rudder. There will be bullet holes added after I let some things dry.

    How did I cut through the plastic, easy, Dremel. You have to plan what areas that you want to damaged and sand them down with the dremel at a very high speed. After you just cut... pretty simple. For small damage all you have to do is take you knife and just twist it to create a hole.

    At some point after build will probably make a base for it... in a field for emergency landing perhaps?

    Thanks very much Jack.

    I made a rather large hole and it looked pretty bare so I decided to add ribbing....I need to move it up a little more but you get the jist...

    Maybe close H, but it looks like u just drilled a hole in it.... A crooked one at that.... Alos, the thickness of the fuselage on the model is about 6 times as thick as the real thing... I can see the thickness in ur pics.... Maybe try and whittle away at that to give the impression of thin sheet metal...

    Not knockin u, just tryin to get it alittle more realistic for u.... And as far as the rib goes, I'd remove it... If a cannon shell made that kinda hole, the rib would be gone as well, and there would most likely be an exit hole....

    The 2nd pic is an exit hole btw...

    Lol, thanks Cory, but like I said, it was my first model in 20 somethin years, and I brush painted it, not accuratly I might add....


    Black landing gear??????????

    It was basically a tester to see if I really wanted to get back into the hobby.... Guess u know the answer to that huh???

    I still cringe when I look at the exhaust stains and the canopy fit/seal...

    Oh.. thought that black stuff was scratches and paint chip, not exhaust :lol:. I dont have the gun sights like terry, so everything is 'accurate' to me. It's just one of those outstanding qualities I possess..

    LMFAO Wojtek!!!

    What I did H was heat up the tip of an old exacto knife blade and touch it the hole edges, lightly touching and pulling away... Melts the plastic slightly and gives that "jagged" look...

    Remember, always practice on a piece of scrap prior to the real deal man...

    Oh Dan, funny you say that my dad said it and he is an 'old' modeller who doesn't build anymore and he told me that and I was like Pffffffffffft yea right in my mind, but now that you mention it I'll give it a go.

    The splatter effect around the holes I made was done by heating up an old airbrush needle and just barely touching the skin of the model....

    Small little indentions really adds realism to the entry exit holes....
