  Syria Independence Day 2010 


The kit used was the Amodel Kit and was built straight out of the box. The kit had a very bad fit with very unclear instructions. There were many pieces, mostly small and thin but attached to a very thick sprue, so most of the pieces were either broken or snapped as they were removed. I decided to forego most of the details. The windows did not fit well and had to be reshaped.

The paint scheme was the simple dark green on light blue. Colors used were Model Master Acrylic LichtBlau RLM 76 4786, Model Master Acrylic Dark Green 4726 and Model Master Acrylic Gunship Gray. The usual coat of future, black Promodeller weathering wash and the Model Master flat coat. Decals were home made.

Hope you enjoyed this and stay tuned for more to come!!
