It was done with an airbrush and a stencil for the mottled effect. Not strictly accurate for that aircraft but looks OK. I quite like 1/72 scale as they are quite small (which has a high WAF). Though they are a bit small, tweezers are my friend! Quite fancy a 1/72 B52 but even in that scale they are quite big - about 650mm.this kit is only 4,4 cm long? nice! (but to small for me...)
Did you have to paint (or air brush) it ?
did you already say what the matchsticks model (the one you got from the mrs) is? (or did i miss your answer?)
