Love the pic #37. Really brave choice for a return to the hobby, though I love these vintage kits. You'd better pick the new Airfix Fresco to enjoy the building next time 😉

Thanks Lukasz. My first kit was that Lindberg Do 335. Not a great kit but I was doing well with it and then disaster struck when the flat varnish I used reacted with the paint. I got a little discourage and decided to try this kit. I learned a lot. I do have my eye on that new Airfix Fresco but recently it became hard to find. Anyway, I'm working through my duplicate kits in my stash and the next one might be a Starfighter in Canadian livery.

Looks good, Rui! Nice NMF, what did you use? When you said there was a lot of oversized rivets, you weren't kidding...

Łukasz Gliński
Airfix released rebox recently (with Polish silver-blue livery) which might explain the availability issues

Thanks Gordon. I used Vallejo Air Aluminium and Dark Aluminium. First time using Vallejo paints. The metal ended up looking textured which didn't show in my test sprays so I think it was the Stynylrez white primer.

Nice result with an old kit.
I had this kit and several others from KP in my stash. I sold them all. Instead I have build the Airfix and Hasegawa Mig-17. More fun.
Only brave men or women are able to build the old KP kits 🙂

Thank Johan, I figured that if I can do a half decent job on a old difficult kit like this, then I should be able to a reasonably good job on a modern quality kit.

@Thomas - I will reveal you a secret here: MisterCraft kits generally are hideous...

It must have been a bad batch as that's so unnatural for Mr Surfacer.
30. November, 17:23
Łukasz Gliński
That's why they used to be called Mr Crap 😉

Robert, Łukasz, guys, I cannot agree with you more. Normally I won't touch Mistercraft (Plastyk), with a ten foot pole. It will bite you at every step.

Great work and a really nice finish with the soft weathering.

Nicely done. The molds looked very nice, or so was my impression.

Mmmm... not so much. Many details are scratchbuilt. Thanks for your feedback.

Fabio that's a really nice build and some great added details. Love the paint work. Top job Sir. 😉

some update after a long break. Finished build and a bit of rescribbing. preparing for primer. all comments/critics are welcome

Thomas Kolb
Nice progress! I see you were struggling with the same wing-to-fuselage join as I was, but you managed to fill it in nicely! What color scheme did you have in mind?
14. November, 11:00
Pierre Vauthier
thanks yes and I am not confortable with my filling sanding scribbing (still learning). I will go for vietnamese color but I do not know if I do a OOB or else.
