I am back with my 1/48 Nachimo Nick, an old kit but really quite good.
I painted the white and yellow, camo is freehand.
Wing navigation lights and landing light are done by removing plastic, painting light source (I added a MV lens for landing light) and filled with 5 minute epoxy.
I used a mix of kit decals and after market.
Chipping was done with prismacolor pencil, exhaust was pastel. Radio wire is human hair.

Hope you like it.

That's a lovely build and the prismacolor chipping looks as good or better than other techniques we often see. Timely inspiration too, since I just staged one of these on my own bench last weekend. If it turns out half as nice as yours I'll be quite pleased with it.
