Anyway, this weeks entry is a bit of a departure for me because it is 1/48th scale (a little over 40mm). I bought it to accompany a 1/48th Spitfire from Revelle that I received at Christmas. I may yet paint that for the Challenge, but it has been years since I attempted a kit model as complicated as this and so far I have chickened out of starting it! So you get the Pilot first, with the possibility of the aircraft at a later date.
This resin model of a British Airman is made by a Czech manufacturer and I bought it through a German supplier! The quality was excellent with just a little bit of resin flash that was easily removed with the edge of a blade. Other than that and a wash to clean the surface before priming no other prep was needed.
Hopefully, I'll have more to present next week. I'm halfway through some Natal Native Horse and a heavy parcel filled with tanks has just arrived from Peter Pig!
