DKoK Lightening Completed








I think I've 'finished' this model a couple of time, but this time it is really done. To counteract more of enamel problems, I dusted the entire model with a 1/10 mixture of Buff color. This dusted the model and provide a similar effect to a filter. The only real difference is that when I normally apply filters I don't let them get into the recesses of the model. By spraying buff, it became an all over filter. I also painted all of the missing lenses, and the pilot.

The base is not done, but I am still thrilled to move this model off of my desk and into the cabinet. The base is a separate and probably more enjoyable task.

I guess it is time to paint something bigger...

  1. Gorgeous recovery from the damaged build. Love it, great to see the Luftwaffe colours put to a more worthy cause, the Emperor's enemies!(Btw, it's Lightning...no 'e'). ;)
