I know, not very impressive. One whole 1/700 Avenger... I didn't even add any of the photoetch that's out there. But I did hand paint it all and I'm just wondering what you guys (and gals too) think of it. I added an antenna from a piece of flattened copper wire that was cut to shape and the antenna wire is a brush fiber - the smallest size I had. And I know, the antenna is in the wrong spot as it should be forward more but I'm not moving it now. I also etched (to the best of my abilities) lines into the canopy to try to simulate the canopy frame.

I plan on using this in a later build of a Trumpeter Essex. And yes, I know I still need to put the fuselage stars and bars decals on.

I like it, nice paint.

Im usually iffy on my own planes as im painting them, but once all the decals are on, all those thoughts go away. :smallsmile:
