India Republic Day



Built this Indian navy's work horse aircraft. This is the non radome variant of Do-228 with serial number IN-237.

I had to scratch some of the features to make it more accurate.  1. Couple of ventral fins for the tail boom.  2. The flaps actuator arms (kit doesn't supply these),  3. Couple of antennae.  Also added the rigging and static discharge wicks from tooth brush bristles. Used model master Medium gray acrylic to represent tipnis grey.

Overall a quick and satisfying build of a Indian Naval bird after a long time. 

Hope you all like it.
