Hasegawa Ju87B done

YAY! Finally finished my first model for this year, Hasegawa’s 1/48 Ju87B. Quite a few mistakes on this one but what the hell, it’s done. Next up is the F-104C Starfighter.

So things I’ve learned from this? Apart from don’t bother making planes if I was to do this scheme again I would try and tone down the sharkmouth more. I did overspray it with an off-white but it’s still too bright. Also don’t put the model upside down as the aerial mast does’nt like it and I had to make a new one from styrene aerofoil shaped strip. Also the cockpit colour is wrong as I used a match for RLM 02 Grey rather than RLM 66 Black Grey.  Sue me! :o)

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
