Nice job on that treacherous kit....me and the Eduard 190 series have a love/hate relationship. I did Novotny's A-5 out of the Eduard kit last year. like how you dealt with the lousy gun bay fit. I'll be watching your progress.

That fit issue and such is why mine is about 30% and sitting in the Shelf of Someday collection. Well done sir. You have "Successfully NARFTLED THE GARTHOK!"

Ouch, think the deadline will catch me right on the home stretch... :cry:

RLM 76 with shadings is applied on the lower surfaces and the sides of the fuselage. Started with RLM 75 on the wings last night.

The canopy took a bath in a well known floor finish. Drying phase under a glass dome.

See you soon,

First layer of RLM 75 is on the wings.

I'll use some templates to achieve the fine shading between the two camouflage colours. I scaled the Eduard Instructions PDF down to model size and put a thin sheet of paper (80g / m^2) on my display. Then I copied the outlines of the pattern.
Image

After that I transferred them on thin cardboard.

Now back to bench for painting.
