Ok, since the '109 canopy's are doing my head in... time for a break and start something else, the £5 challenge :)

The contents:



Rather back to the 60/70's, wheels & undercarriage struts moulded as one, ditto for the props... and a very, very low part count.

Work started on the cockpit etc

First coatish on the zero, colours supposed to be hemp, whatever shade that's supposed to be .... might need to add a bit more green to the mix

Arh well, cocked up the colour....now there's a surprise, so once more out with the airbrush for a change of colour:

Topside after pre-shading with black followed by a steel mix, aiming (badly) for a worn effect

Side on





Leave it dry for a while....about a year or so, then onto the markings and odds n sods :)

Update, markings done and a flat coat applied

Markings are part kit & part Airfix from the '109, they provided the roundels
