Hello again. It has being a long while since my last contribution and here I am with my latest build. This is an OOB build and the only improvement was the decal set from Eagle Cals #EC 79. I used MM's enamel and acrylic paints with RLM 75 and 74 for the upper surfaces and RLM 76 for the lower and sides of the airplane. The overall camo scheme was done freehand with an airbrush.

The fit of the parts was mostly spot on with the exception of the left wing which it had a substantial gap and I had to get creative to overcome it. "Black 12" was initially part of JGr. 10, a weapons testing unit, but in May 1945 the unit was disbanded and this aircraft was reassigned to 8./JG 300. During a quick research to see what happened to this aircraft, I found an old photo that I am pretty sure it was from this plane. Apparently, the plane crashed after a battle in the closing days of WWII.

Although this was a simple build, it turned out very nice and I am happy to share it with all of you.

Enjoy the photos.
