Hey chaps, just thought I would post a recent commission, a long time since I completed anything! A bit of a departure for me, this being my first 'American' build, but as a Coastal Command version. A lovely kit and painting a white scheme is real challenge what with trying not to make it look, umm...white! I used a very light grey on top of a white base and then weathered with oils.

A very tricky scheme even though it looks very simple - a challenge having to mask the leading edge curves of the vertical stabs and spray black (actually dark grey for scale). Replacement brass barrels are a nice alternative to the poor kit parts. I made the base with a laser cutter. Photos are a bit rubbish as I did them with my phone, at night. :Thumbup

Next stop, the Airfix Walrus! :Geek
