Stuka
« on: February 27, 2013, 09:45:13 AM »
I recently finished the building phase of another project -- a Stuka. Finished building, but haven't gotten around to painting yet because of other commitments. Anyhow, here's a couple "nekkid" photos of the nasty Junkers, on its way to the paint shop...

Great looking Stuka. The details are superb. Need some close up photos when you get it painted. What plans did you use?

I used the ID model plan. Just added few details: dive sirens and dive brakes, bomb and cradle, etc...

And finally...After two years of procrastinating and being sidetracked by other hobbies, jobs, etc., I finally managed to get the Stuka painted. Had some trouble with the decals, unfortunately. Instead of making my own, as usual, this time I bought some on-line. They looked great in the envelope, but all too often they came apart when I tried to use them. So I'm not as happyt as I might have been. But I'm glad the job is done, and it's not the worst thing I've ever done...

It may have taken a while, but it was sure worth the wait. The model looks great.
