Extras- Red Roo Models tropical filter and serial number decals.

I used the reasonably new Australian SMS lacquer paints on this one, nice paints, similar to MRP. Also used Tamiya, Vallejo metal colours, and Flory sand wash on it, as it was based in Egypt.

This kit has several parts that attach around fuselage door area instead of just 2 fuselage halves, unfortunately they didn't fit well and I had to fill gaps. Otherwise an easy build.

That is very nice. The color tones are spot on. Very well done, as is normal for you.
