Gallery Article by Philip De Keyser on Mar 12 2012

 

 

This is the Italeri Kit, it is a Re-Box from the old ESCI one, the kit have some nice details, it is not as a Tamiya or a Hasegawa but still you can get this one also very nice with a little bit of work.  I replaced the seats with a pair of Quickboost seats and a couple of Aires engines, thatís all I replaced on this one. The decals is a after market set from Aeromaster that I got from a friend.

The paint that I used is the old Humbrol. The numbers are 118 light earth, 116 Dark US green, 117 light US green, I lightened them up up with a little bit of yellow to the green colors and white with the light earth color.  I give it a wash with watercolors, thatís quick and easy to remove, donít forget to put on a clear cote before when you go to use the watercolors or itís going to go wrong.

Enjoy the pictures.
