:D Hi all, thought you all might like to have a look at this model of Umbriago ive done for myself..

i had a kit which was in a bad state and wasnt going to use it untill now, two reasons im running out of room and the B at DX flew over me got me thinking if i could do a model in a just taken off pose....it took some work mainly with the under carriage legs they dont fit into the wheel bays so i had to do abit of filling and sanding and got them to look ok. i had a set of decals i made spare from doing Umbriago for bill espie. the model is finished with a two tone olive drab paint for a bit of pannel wear and some thinned down smoke for a used look i didnt add any paint chips and ive still got to get the codes on..............
