I like it...looks very realistic - the only thing I have a problem with is the orange tarp atop the bustle. It looks like epoxy putty rolled out, draped over the model, and then painted. I think I might've used something with texture, like a paper towel or something like that.

Very nice, congrats, I think that the air identification tarp is correct, the one we used in Italy was plastic, and from the pictures it seems that the Israeli one was plastic too.

Hi

Really like the base - simple and effective. Excellent weathering too!
Hope to see some figures added too?
