It took over a year. Thousands of rivets.. Next few days and it should be ready ;-)

Outstanding detail. The extra wok on the rivets brings this plane to life! Looking forward to the completed model. Thanks for posting.

Great weathering (esp. color modulation)! Mabey there is thousands of rivets but end result is beautiful.

Just few finishing touches to be done. The colours are MRP Verde Oliva Scuro and MRP Grigio Azzurro Macchi-Regiane - I have no clue if it's correct but I like it. And I'm having problems with my camera :-(

Just to add the antenna wire and some "smoke" ;-) And of course it looks too dark on the picture. I'll try in a few days with different camera and light. Quite a lot of work on this short run kit - but I had a lot of fun building it and trying some new (for me...) techniques. Wing fasces have been airbrushed using Montex masks - my "first time" - but I'm quite happy with the result. Kit's decals were bit old and stiff so I decided to use them only on the fuselage. Weathering is just "so-so" - these "birds" served only for several weeks so no chipping- streaking-making dirty this time ;-)

The finish is outstanding. The surface actually looks metal painted over - the best I've seen. I like how you applied a reverse wash of white, that's exactly how to do a dark finish.

Thank you - it's very kind. Actually painting was quite easy - those MRP paints are just great. Low pressure and patience - thats's all ;-)

That is looking fantastic, I'm just starting a build of the same kit and hope it turns out as nice as yours.

Cheers
