I present to you one of my planes, I built it within Duet Build “Arrows in the sky”.
This model kit was gifted to me by the modelers of our model club for my birthday, for which I thank them very much!
The kit is of very good quality with a clear jointing, good connectivity and without sink marks. The model is fully from the kit, no improvements have been done, but this is not due to the fact that I built the model from a kit, as usually, but because the kit was stuffed with everything you need â thatâs an etched cockpit, resin chairs and nozzles, so if you decide to buy anything at all, then buy some armament, though native one of plastic is quite normal as well. Initially, I hoped to obtain a lot of fun during the assembly, and the assembly as well as painting gave no problems and lacking, but as soon as it came to the decals … then I plunged into gloom. I was just killed by the decals, by their quantity, particularly technical decals, there were more than 200 various small labels that could repeated up to 5 times. I was putting them on during 2 or 3 weeks. In the end, after all the technicals were attached, the plane looked like a newspaper, there was too much contrast, and there was too many of them, and to repay the contrast I had to make a homemade filter and mute the decks. But despite all the suffering, I liked the result, and hope that you will enjoy it as well.
For coloring I used paints Mr. Color, neutral remover Mig, varnish Mr. Color and Tamiya.
What resulted is for you to judge.
That’s a great looking plane you built mate!
