I have never built the Tamiya kit but I have heard plenty good things about it so....

The Kit...



Got some work done and the cockpit is almost finished, just need to add the gunsight and a few more bobs..

Some progress - got the black base coat done and polished up some areas awaiting the Alclad Polished Aluminium and Chrome top coats tonight. There has been a change of scheme though, after BMFíng the front cowling, i was so happy with the BMF finish that I decided not to cover it up with Blue as per the EVIE scheme, so this one will change and the result will be a surprise (mainly çause I don't know which to use yet)

Are you using the chrome color to represent chromed surfaces or do you just prefer the finish you get?

The cowling looks great already. Cool

Hi Ken, just like to mix and match Chrome and Polished Aluminium cause I like the slight variation it gives. The cowl is totally screwed, tried to make the anti glare section thinner to match that now on the plane, and cocked it up completely FUCKKKKKKKK! So I am stripping it all down and starting over. The plane is still going along though and I have put down a slightly weathered anti glare panel (the one that caused me to try and fix the cowl Sad  )
