Hello All,

Platz's diminutive but excellently engineered 1/144 kit in SEAC guise. The only drawback is the shallow main gear attachment points. Paints a combination of Vallejo Metal Colour, Alclad II, and Games Workshop paints on varying panels. Theatre bands Gunze Acrylic cobalt blue. panel line wash artists acrylics and dirtied inner wing area - MiG neutral wash touched up with some games workshop silver to break up the uniformity. Post shading done as a mix of Tamiya Black, smoke and red brown.

Thanks for looking.

You took a wonderful kit and improved it with the build and markings.  
Be happy with that one, it's a winner.

Ian, Very well done weathering.  The kit is a gem to begin with but you have "taken it to the next level".  Thank you for sharing.

Really nice Ian. I have those markings by Freight Dog for a future 1/32 Thunderbolt project. In an unusual turnabout, I’ve saved the photos of your 1/144 beauty to benchmark against for that 1/32 project. Thanks for posting those. Looking forward to seeing your next project.
