Great little kit, and an easy build, decals with this Special Edition kit are Cartograf, so they set great.

Camo is Italeri acrylics, other paints used were Tamiya, Gunze and Vallejo acrylics, Vallejo Metal Color.
I mixed up some Flory dark dirt and brown wash for this one, Vallejo Matte Varnish finish it off. Really enjoyed this one, and I love the desert scheme, one of my favourite schemes on WW2 aircraft.

Looks great to me! Any fit issues like the monogram?

That looks like a nice kit. You did a fantastic job on it, that's for sure!!

I didn't even know Academy made a Tomahawk IIb.

I'll have to add this kit to my collection.  :)

Wing root fit was a bit of trouble, but that could have been my own doing, otherwise a great kit
