A quick update, finished the basic colour scheme and now ready to start adding decals after a couple of coats of Clear varnish.
You may note the broken off tail wheel which needs fixing.
Colours are Hu 33 matt black underside, Hu 29 dark earth and Mr Colour dark green topside, all hand painted. Most of the time was taken up with masking.
Here is the painting guide and decals to start going on tomorrow.
All the bits and pieces not used in this build, including seven nicely detailed 50 cal machine guns, diamond tread tyres, complete ball and chin turrets, US bomb load, cockpit canopy and retracted and extended H2S radar dome that fits into the ball turret opening.
On the final straight now and will have more pictures when the decals are on.
