No, I haven't been in the photocopier room during the staff party...

I wanted to build something quickly for a change, so I picked up the PM Me P.1111 'Luftwaffe 46' kit from ebay and got to work.

It's a complex kit - 14 parts in total. Step one was to blank off the intakes so it wasn't see-through. A couple of strips of plastic card got the job done. A little nose weight was needed, but not much:

That did the job:

Then the interior was painted RLM 66 (good for hiding the lack of detail ). All I added was some tape harness straps. Here it is togethwer, with the canopy masked and the frames painted 66 as well. (The canopy is very clear, but had no frames marked, so I made a 'best guess' happy that no photos are likely to emerge.

[/IMG]

Painting was by rattle can Tamiya lacquers, masked with blu-tack. I quite liked the scheme I decided on too. (Coulda been more careful with overspray, but its much less noticeable in real life and actually helps even out the finish a bit:

[/IMG]

All I need to do now is a wash in the control surfaces and gun ports, and matte it down. Total time so far is about 100 minutes.

Finishe dpics to follow.

Cheers,

Andrew

That is one mean looking plane. Nice paint job too. I just got one in under the wire too.

Way to go!

No contest winner, but a fun quick build, and I think it looks pretty cool:

Here it is with another PM model, the Lippisch P.13a

Merry Christmas all.

Those two look very cool together. Again, nice paint schemes too. I'd hate to see those climbing up to intercept me!

Nice job Andrew.

A quickie and a marvelous original subject

That's very nice work for such a cheap basic kit

I have to get myself one of these too - good colour scheme !
