Photo Three - As photo one, but from a different angle. At this stage the model has been given a Kleer wash with a touch of GW Black Wash added to pick out the surface detail. The tail mounted shield design was from a 1/48th scale WW2 German set.
The model was produced on the 'spur of the moment' - prompted by the LAF's competition. If I was to plan this particular model or rebuild it, I would not have used the existing resin casting, but have scratchbuilt a more 'barrel-shaped' hull, less streamlined and slightly shorter. I might also have modelled the rear sun shade as an inverted 'V' or tent-like shape.
