Hi all,

Here's a sneaky picture (or two) of my latest build, the Special Hobby 1/48 Phonix D.II, built completely out of the box.




The kit was kindly donated to the forum by Special Hobby, so... please find below a link to the full in-box review and build log (with plenty more pictures):

Many thanks again to Special Hobby for kindly donating the kit!

Cheers!

Very well done, Brad!
I have build this nice kit in the D.I "K.u.K. Kriegsmarine" release some time ago and showed it here in our forum, but your mottling is much better. I used the wrong paint ::)
I added real wood to the lower surface (as test for a wooden Lloyd), replaced the struts by wood and metal and used a wooden airscrew.
The details of the resin water radiator are great!

Cheers,
Frank
Wikipedia says: A model is a simplified representation of reality.
So I create downscaled originals.

Now thatís a review.

Excellent work as usual.

I wonder if the mottle could have been achieved by the method wnw say to use for the splatter on the Halberstadt.
