This model is based on the old Pegasus kit.  The cockpit is entirely scratchbuilt.  The camouflage on the upper wing is handpainted with a very fine brush (#OOO).  For CDL, I used only the Gunze Sangyo sail colour.

Here is my method for representing wood.  First, I paint a coat of Gunze sail or sand colour.  Next I drybrush the model with burnt sienna oil colour from Winsor & Newton all over the wooden area.  To finish, I put on a wash of brown madder alizarin (W & N) diluted with a mix of one part turpentine and one part white spirit applied to recessed lines with the same very fine brush.

Metallic parts are painted with Testor's German silver and brass.

The exhaust pipes are made with syringe needles - no, I'm not addict ;-).

Cockades and rudder markings come from the kit or Pegasus decals.  The serial is printed on a laser.

This model is entirely rigged with polyamide monofilament sewing thread.
