    Love it! Of course this is my favorite Warbird. Nice subtle weathering as the real ones varied from newer looking to pretty beat up.

    Yes - Trumpeter kit - pretty well straight from the box although I did use a Cutting Edge cockpit.

    Elevators are a little lacking in chord it appears - but overall I really liked this kit. Decals were Cutting Egde too IIRC - with area on the real airframe where decals were applied and showed up (yup - not on a model - but in real life for a change!) was done by over-spraying clear decal with thinned Tamiya 'smoke' - look at areas where original 'tigers' had partially come off/been taken off and you'll see the original decal outline - as with all the other Sqn markings.

    Weathering was as per photos - but it could do with some MiG pigments around the wheels and a little more oil staining underneath I think.

    But thanks for kind words - really appreciated!

    That was a nice touch on replicating the varnish that they put over the decals so they wouldn't blow off in flight, the Walt Disney Studios made those decals for them. If you wouldn't mind, I'd like to put up the photos and any info you would like to add on the model to my website devoted to it.

    Hiya Brad,

    Would be most honored!

    If I get a chance I'll weather the wheels and add a few oild stains underneath and do some fresh photos - but please feel free to grab the images from here for now. Also - when I get a chance (busy trying to finish a Skyraider atm for a magazine feature) - I'll scrawl a few words.
