Back to that Chibi :
Gloss varnish, Tamiya dark brown panel liner, matt varnish, pastels and then cockpit interior in place and half fuselages glued...

Interresting discovery I must say : Positionning the canopy revealed spaces between the rear of the hood and the fuselage.
Annoying because the putty Vallejo I envisaged to use is white, and the white could be visible frolm the interior!
I tested something: to add to the putty a drop of black paint and to mix both before use.
Result is perfect!

OK, back to this one too!
After a white primer overall, I've airbrushed AK RC 254 Camouflage Grey on the lower surfaces ; after masking phase, Gunze H27 on some elements and after a second masking phas" AK RC 225 Dark Tan. Next step : masking again...

Masking such small and curved shapes does not look as so easy task

Well, not really easy indeed but some "true" aircraft

Still in progress... But some mistakes need to be corrected in the paints!
