The gun pods were carved from wood and hypo tube used for the barrels.
The cockpit was detailed with some Eduard items and some I made from scratch.
Shown is the radio removed from behind the seat as was with this aircraft.
I changed the tailwheel to the fixed type and made a boot for it out of Milliput.
The landing gear and flaps were detailed using Eduard etched parts.
I painted the model with Tamiya and Gunze Sangyo paint and then sanded it with the MicroMesh system.
All the markings were painted using my masks I cut since I could`nt find decals for the "Black 7" in this scale.
I weathered the model with an oil wash and pastel powders. After the weathering I airbrushed a light mist of Gunze Sangyo flat overall.
