Stunning model. and as the FW studio paint job fits with my forces, I decided to emulate it as best I could, I even went so far as to work out how they layered up the different decals for markings. – there are a few differences, but I think Id have to point them out for them to be noticeable.
The wings are a tricky build as they are quite fragile, as is the tail, so experienced modellers only on this one I am afraid.
this is one of those models that looks okay in pictures, but really is something special in person, its fit with the other imperial flyers I have is decent too.
I frosted the cockpit a little more than usual with the dulcoat, but its also not as clear as GW canopies, its a cast clear resin which is unusual for a FW flier, they usually come with a resin canopy and a plastic insert. but the pilots are beautiful so I left the canopy unglued.
I’m quite pleased with this, both with my matching of the original scheme and with the weathering.
Okay last flyer for a while, a thunderbolt to build for mr Zzzzzz and then we’ll see what follows :)
