OOB build for this one, Intake/FOD covers are made from tissue paper and PVA glue & water

Paints used - Vallejo and Tamiya acrylics, AK Xtreme metals and Gunze metalizer and Citadel. Main camo is Vallejo from their USAF set

Also used - Flory dark dirt wash, Tamiya panel line wash, Oil paints and Mig satin varnish.

I did the camo freehand, I was to lazy to mask up the pattern.

The kit decals were a nightmare, and I should have gotten some AM ones, but wanted a quick build and didn't want to be waiting around for decals. I made a few mistakes on it, and I didn't paint the lights, but it will do for my display cabinet.

Nice job.  The freehand camo looks great.  I also like your work with the exhaust metalizing and staining.

Thanks,

John

Very nice.  Particularly like the exhaust nozzle shading.
