Fieseler Fi103 V-1 Buzz Bomb
Posted by Scale-Master on Sunday, February 11, 2024 11:28 AM
Tamiya 1/48 kit.  The paint scheme is a composite of multiple aircraft I found partial reference for. 
But first I needed to build the trolley.
Assuming the trolley is made of wood, maybe a pressed/ply/composite from what I can tell from photos, I went with AS-45 Tan as a base.  Then I stippled and semi dry-brushed X-24 clear yellow with a little graphite powder before using the brown Panel Line Accent as wash.
The aircraft was rescribed and the panel lines preshaded.

The light blue and dark green (Tamiya AS colors decanted) were airbrushed on and the yellow (Tamiya LP) was masked sprayed about 15 minutes later.  These Tamiya lacquers are fantastic.

The green was mottled with a combination of airbrushing and sponge stippling with the same green tinted with a little smoke.  The yellow area was distressed by wet sanding.

Finished.  Fun kit.  This was a test shot so there were no decals or instructions.

But I found a lot of photos that indicated they didn't all have stenciling or insignias.

 Couldn't have said it any better! First thought was wouldn't that look great in a dio with a couple of figures working on it or around it?

Very good work!  Looks like you got the trolley spot on.  I'm surprised it took eight men to move one!
