S-3 Viking, E-50 with Heimdall turret and Jagdtiger

The S-3 has got some paint on it at last! YAY!; The base coat is Mr Hobby FS26375 (2 at the front because it’s semi-gloss). I was aiming for a patchy effect as this aircraft will be weathered, the fin is masked off as this will stay in the black primer along with the cockpitContinue reading “S-3 Viking, E-50 with Heimdall turret and Jagdtiger”

Trumpeter E-50 with Heimdall turret
