    fancied doing a plane next so pulled this from the stash

    picked it up in GeeDees Models in Nottingham for a quid a few years ago since it had the canopy missing.....quick email to Airfix HQ and one arrive gratis

    you get two different schemes, didnt want to do the normal 2 tone green so have gone for the so called 'Tunisian scheme' which has a sandy coloured upper and a pale blue lower

    this has caused a few problems lol,......know what the RLM numbers are.....know what Humbrol say use.....you try converting into Vallejo Air which is my prefered paint......nightmare!...having to go with something close

    pretty sure i have some swastikas in the decal stash cos as normal the sheet dosnt have any

    Vallejo do a version of the tropical colours (RLM 78 and RLM 79). I don't know how good they are.

    I think you've got the same kit as the Bf 110 in the 'Dogfight Doubles' boxing, which makes a nice little Bf 110.

    That older mould hadn't been altered since 1959. Looking forward to seeing this one in a sand and light blue scheme, something different

    just to show im still working on this.......definatly showing its age, been through the filler and sanding cycle a few times

    cant do anything major for a few days til i get some paint, but i think its going to take that long to mask the canopy!

    So refreshing for the soul, dealing with an old 1:72 classic kit.
