Now that the big bruiser typhoon is done (for now) and the panther sits waiting for a few hundred hours of tedious photo etch, I thought I'd give another Revell micro wings kit a go. I also have the airfix new tool 190 waiting for some love bit that can wait til after the panther.

Box art is pretty nice.



All parts on a single sprue plus a loose clear canopy all in the one bag.



I think I'm going to use a combination of airbrush and hand painting. Also will try to hand paint the swastika (no point trying to pretend it didn't happen)

I will try to document as much of this project as I can.

Cool!
Yeah, Revell is in Germany and they never include the Swastikas. Where are you getting these things from? I'd love to collect those! They're like miniatures lol.

Brit here. You can find them in hobbycraft stores but I just go on eBay and sort by cheapest first. You can pick one up with delivery for less than £3

I think there are 8 or so different kits

Today I found a 1/144 Hurricane kit that I got free with a magazine a while ago, I'm astonished by how tiny these things are, I have missiles on my jets that are twice the size lol ! I really fancy having a go at mine so I will be following this to get some inspiration

PS

I haven't seen Swastikas in kits for many years, I do remember seeing them on the decal sheet when I was a kid, i can't see that banning them from kits of historical subjects will disuade those who are so inclined from trying it again, but I digress, it's a strange world we live in

Airfix removed them from box art and decals over here years ago too, even the manufacturers from the Far East split them on the sheet if they include them at all, I saw a P-51d Pete 2nd that had the yellow swastikas kill markings switched to yellow Xs on the decal sheet , it might even be the Dragon kit I have in my stash

Weird. My 1/72 Testors Me-109 included the swastika, but it was the wrong size. I later found that I had some on another decal sheet that would've been the correct size..  :/

The tamiya 109 I did a while back had them as whole decals.

This thread is making me think a 1/144 SIG would be an excellent idea. I like my little F-14, can't wait to crack it open actually. Looking forward to seeing what you can do with this one NSr (or name?). [smile]

Not too much filling or fit issues to be honest. A little warping on the engine cowling so I had to sand and rescribe

This thing is even smaller than the tempest

That is tiny. If you build enough of those you can eventually build an air show dio for a book shelf. I'm going to see if I can find anything like these around town. I doubt it, but it never hurts to look lol.

Did the Germans just build small planes? I know the typhoon/tempest was a big brute but this is crazy!

Homebrew basecoat of hellblau via airbrush. Now to hand paint the rest. Will use the airbrush for varnish though.





A little bit later. ...
