    Looks good mate, like the Enzo Barracca's pony [or for the layman the Ferrari horse Surprised ], forgot which stormo that was ... may I suggest one thing, next time for intake cover would have been more ideal to work it out from fine Milliput or better from Magic Sculpt or DURO, the texture really show that it's tissue paper ... but again like it mate, hope you are going to Catania as they like local subjects, apart they have special awards for italian planes ...

    Nice, well done.

    p.s. - looking at the cover pics I agree with Ivan and Ray. Could thin lead foil do the trick? just asking. Other than that it was a great idea.

    First of all a real thanks for your encouragment and much helpful criticism !

    I'm quite satisfied with the result as there was an improvement over my last model. I didn't know about drybrushing, preshading, washing, weathering etc etc ... before I joined the club. I still do not consider it as a very high level standard. I did a couple of mistakes that some of them could be easily avoided. These were made due to the urgness to finish the model.

    As regards to the intake covers, I decided to put them on because I was scribing a panel line very close to the intake edge. As I was presseing it too much I ended up chipping a part of the intake. Thus I decided to hide this chipped part with the intake covers. I'm aware that the tissue texture is easily noticed but unfortunately I could not do better. (I'm a very bad sculpture)

    Now I'm looking forward to start working on my next project. This time I will do something new like photoetch and camoflauge.

    I really need your help in these !

    I did both Adrian although the post shading seemed to work more. Orange peel seems inevitable for me.

    Next one is the Mirage 2000C 1/48 of Eduard. Right now I'm waiting for the resin detail set and cockpit I bought from the net.

    Great work on your first build Antoine.

    Now on to that Mirage -> from what you told me about it at the Club, I know it's gonna be a hit.

    Cool Cool
