    New to the forum and, as promised, here's the first of my recent builds. This was a great kit to put together for someone just coming back to modelling and attempting to make a better job than the glue-soaked, unpainted efforts as a boy!

    Add-ons were some after market wheels and under carriage, also pitot tube.

    Have a nightmare with some after market decals (they all broke apart) so i had to use the kit decals which tuned out fine. However this resulted in the camo not being 100% accurate for this particular aircraft. No worries though.

    That camo scheme looks pretty beat up....just the way I like to see operational aircraft. :) Two thumbs up and welcome.

    Cheers,

    Jan must particularly love that one for his penchant for 13's and all things distilled and fermented.

    Well done. Whether or not it's totally accurate is unimportant. What matters is this. Did you enjoy it?

    I like your attitude about building models, at6. Nicely done, Sir Ade, and one of my all-time favorite subjects.....going to build GenLtn. Galland's 262 next year. Weiss 3. Hasegawa kit in divine scale.
