Your T-90 looks really good, Carlos. Fantastic job on the camouflage.

Marcos, that is a great paint job on the camo. There is some great progress on this campaign already.
On my Scooter, the conversion has begun. These are the two key visual changes

So surgery is begun

And the new intakes blended in. It took 2 or 3 attempts at sanding, filling and painting to get to the seamless look.

And you'll have notice the nose has also gone for the shorter resin inset once the halves are joined.

cheers

That is an outstanding camo job, Marcos, what did you use for masking?

I did print several pictures to the actual size of the model and used those as a cutting pattern for the tape.

Hi Marcos,

I agree - the splinter camo on your T-90 looks excellent.

Hi all

I am in with Trumpeter's Fw 190D-9.

About 10 years ago my wife gave me this kit as a gift for Christmas. I slapped it all together and painted it with Tamiya's can spray. I hope this rebuild will be a marked improvement over that.

That Fennek model is a jewel. I built the Dutch version. Really nice.

Hi Linus,
Nice to see another plane in this campaign. i just built Trumpeters 1/24 Hurricane for the Tank Hunters campaign. They are big beasts in that scale these planes. Looking forward to see how this goes.

No name in the Tankograd Fennek Book. They say that:
'in order to prevent revealing light reflections from the windows, special, finely woven plastic screens can be mounted'.
