Thank you friends !

Here is some progress on cockpit, the basic color is faded ( own mixture ) RLM02 than the basic shade with original RLM02 then I play a little with oil paints, first light in the middle of the bigger flat areas then a darker on the sides

Hello all,

>> Modellius : Will be this Bf 108 B civil or military plane ?
If it's a civil a/c, seats are OK.
On military planes seats were made of fabrics.
Another detail : don't forget to make curtains under the transparent roof of the canopy.

Thank you mate, I will have to make some more detail research, the Š-07 crashed so small amount of photos of this bird is available, if I don't find anything specific any version is ok  :-green

In the meantime while the endless hours of get this kit in straight line ( lot of putty and sanding, rebuilding the lost details ) I started the base. I like to keep it simple, so I found a picture frame of good size, made the background from balsa wood ( which will be the base of the scene ) and glued a layer of newspaper on it, the newspaper gives a pretty good base for the rest of the work

This is going faster than I imagined... I made the base of ground with some sand, ( a friend's gift who work in the foundry ), basic paint is black, then earth, first wash with burnt umber, and then high lightning  the details with black wash and sand brown dry brush

And I try some different approach, to break up the military look..... Static grass and flowers are Model Scene products and they are great !
