My first HS 129 B3 variant /38mm fitted these are great kits.



Ok,getting this one going now, first off the pilot, I had him painted up for another aircraft, he will do as is.


just a very basic IP painted grey with T/S 4 gunze then flat black dials, dry brushed with Humbrol 191 chrome silver, you won't see much of this when all closed up as it sits way down in the pit nose


test fitting the pilot tub to make sure the fuselage halves close up, tacked the 75mm gondola on for to see how it looks.

Barrel treated with Uschi burnishing liquid.




must of rattled some teeth when that went off!!

Thanks Snowy!

getting a bit further, just to give you an idea what I have in mind for this one.

The tree hides the support rod quite good, I have drilled through the centre of the trunk so the rod disappears into the tree, down the trunk and protrudes out of the base , this will then be fixed to a small board.

Thanks Geoff, a good way to start 2015, !! slowing myself down to make sure I don't F,,k this up!!!

got the little base made and the edging stained, still dying after two days, humid as hell here in Oz, expecting 30 c Sunday, so place closed up, A/C on, all day modelling expected.

These radial props on this aircraft, I believe the port rotates counter clockwise, and Stb clockwise do you know if this is correct?

being Hasegawa that uses the brilliant poly caps, I can change the prop blurs around if I have it wrong.

Did the prop blurs and put the wheels in,













Gloss coated then kit decals used with Future under and over, no problems at all with them.

Flatcoat next up then onto the final parts.











The base ready for ground cover,will do that in the next couple of days


Maybe add this and call it ''Not worth the shot! "

WOW that is looking fantastic Phil. I believe you got the prop rotation spot on. I'm a bit stuck on the Stuka, waiting for a masking set so i am about to start my Henschel.

Done!

If anyone attempts this kit, pay close attention to the canopy section, this needs some thought as it is a touch to narrow at the top making

it extremely hard to glue to the fuselage.
You could cut/sand away some plastic where the rear painted area of the canopy fits(if posed closed)as you would not see there.

All in all a nice kit to build.
