Your correct my dear woman I'am drunk,and you are ugly,but in the morning I shall be sober-Winston Churchill
Steve, some nice work happening there mate, looking forward to the next update.
Tony, glad you found your parts. I confess I let everything build up around me as well when I'm building and then a big clean up before the next build and I have to get it all out again, I think I would be happier with a bigger table ;D.
Chris, looking good mate and the time spent masking really paid off.
OK,gentlemen,...as promised,my first update of the day. I drybrushed the 'pit added the IP,and belts
I then fitted the pit,and joined the fuselage together
Can't see much now Next a couple of shots of the main airframe,minus the antennae not needed,and the beacon on top of the tailplane
The putty in the top view,is where I removedthe rectangular part seen in the early piccies....and you'll also note that all the weapons pylons are fitted. There might be a bit more to come a bit later ;D
Cheers Robbo.....and for my next trick.....ANOTHER update
As you can see,I've added the flaps,built up the engine cowl,(closed up to prevent FOD),assembled her undercrackers,and dry fitted for piccie purposes,oh and the elevators Just one more......couldn't resist ;D Her full weapons load out,minus the centre line tank

Good to see the paint on her Steve. The dark brown is perfect...same color I use. Don't think you need the HS now, unless it's under the green. Now you can go to town on the burnt areas. Just mix things up and add the layers. Check out the post by Edi on his knocked out T-34 in the rusty category. There is also a great ref pic for you.
LOL...sneaky Steve!!! I checked in here and there was one pic!!! Come back and there was a slew posted!!! Yeah, Check out Edi's stuff!! Key word...layers! Time to start the crispy section(s)!! ;D ;D ;D ;D
