Astonishing work for his age. The airbrushing of the camo is excellent.
If no ones already mentioned it, it is definitely one of Airfix's new ones as in has lovely recessed lines rather than the nasty old raised detail. Although its out of scale, I don't think the lines are too bad as if you make them too small, they go invisible at this scale. If you want to reduce then, just give the plane a good sand over when its together until they almost disappear, then rescribe with a thin scriber, like the cheap Trumpeter one. But I'm sure Dad already knows this!
I've got similarly big panel lines on my Airfix Canberra build as it came from a similar time. I'm keeping my fingers crossed as I've left them too so I'll see how it goes.
Cannot wait to see the spit with its decals on. Should look brilliant. Well done young man
I'm really proud of jake and the patience he showed putting this one together. My involvement was limited to setting up the AB and mixing paints etc ( and cleaning the bloody thing too ! ). For a kit that was under 10 bucks it came out very nice , totally changed my opinion of Airfix products.
Time permitting I will try and take some better pics but my set up is limited to a piece of white card and a chair...
Thanks for all the comments Jake got a kick out of all the encouragement from you guys
Looks like we got ourselves some new competition fellas. Jake... that plane came out looking fantastic... you did a wonderful job and we can tell you put alot of hard work into it. The weathering is top notch bro! Great job and well done! Can't wait to see what else you build in the future!
