Here are photos of my Italeri 1/72 Short Sunderland MkIII, wearing the colours of the French Aeronavale.

I have added Eduard photoetched details in the cockpit. Otherwise, it is built "out of the box" and painted with Prince August colours and aerograph. 

Weathering, as you can see on one picture, is inspired by a photo of the real aircraft. It seems that birds loved to have a rest on this hydroplane, as the white "lines" suggests!
