Fine Molds 1/72 scale

The kit in itself is a superb little bit of engineering
and light years (err...no pun intended...) ahead of the old AMT/ERTL MPC
kits from our misspent youths. Taking little more than an evening, the
build is simple and straightforward, despite the fact the instructions
are completely in Japanese.
Lacking any Gunze colours to follow the instructions with, I substituted
White Ensign Models US Navy Blue Grey for the main colour, and was very
pleased with the resulting shade. The weathering was approached in the
identical fashion that any bit of armour or aircraft would get that I
was building, getting a gloss treatment preceding the oil's wash.

Fine Molds kits are available in the UK from SBX Models
Many thanks to David at SBX for the kit.
