Very good work! I like all the scratches, dents and holes on and in the panels.

Thanks for yor kind words mates :)

The scratches/chipping was done by simply drawing the scratches onto the paint job, before clear coating it. I jused AK's water colour pencils for the first time and I have to say I'm quiet pleased with the result.

@James: Then by all means get one ;) It's one of my favorite Tamiya kits and is actually one of Tamiyas more affordable kits and well worth every cent 👍

Thank you Gorby and all of you mates for your encouraging words! With this build I did a couple of 'firsts'. Besides the extensive use of water colour pencils for the weathering, this is also my first (aircraft) build on which I did not use any decals at all. I am really happy you like it 👍

Thanks Micky! ...the chipping was done with AK's water colour pencils. I basically just draw the scratches onto the paint job, before the first clear coat. I can recommend these penciles for this kind of work 👍
