Gary Kitchen Lovely build. 'Bird Dog' made me think about the 80's movie Bat*21 with Gene Hackman and Danny Glover. A quick wiki check suggests that to be a Cessna O-2 Skymaster(?) Still, if you now added the Douglas ED-66E that Hackman baled out of, you'd have a lovely theme.
You may of course already have considered this, so ignore me but nice to reminisce about movies I loved from my childhood that got me into aircraft and models.

Gordon Sørensen Great looking Birddog, Max. Very clean build. I still have the one I built 28 years ago hanging from the ceiling in my mancave. Not quite as nice as yours...

Gary Kitchen Hi Max- If I recall in Bat*21 there's a good scene where a Skyraider arrives and does its thing! And Air America, Mel Gibson classic! What about Flight of the Intruder? A-6 Intruder - love it- what a little workhorse! All the best.
Pierre Vauthier super clean! the MK-7 white wahsable camo style looks very well rendered. how did you achieved it?

Max Maky Thanks for watching! I applied basic camouflage (Dark Green/Dark Earth). Than take a layer of A.MIG 024 Washable White. After washing it with water, a very beautiful and natural effect was obtained. However, a very deep wash was obtained and after that I applied a thin layer of white paint, like a filter.
