Airfix 1:72 kit.  No detailing but good practice for rigging (in this scale) and for painting schemes...

  Great looking "Albie" Chris and for Des, I must say the Pheon Lozenge impresses me, better colour presentation then some of the others IMHO. These are all great looking Albatros subjects, I like this new category a lot, very useful in future I think.
Cheers,
Lance

Ken,
   She's an absolute beauty; to steal a quote, "Top Drawer". I really admire the shading of the fabric covered components. Is it Pre-shading or applied after the final finish?
Cheers,
Lance

Lance it is a combination of dry-brushing the mauve and green areas with white added to lighten the shade and also a little use of pastels in similar shades .... Pastel chalks are the cats meow and once you get the hang of them you can do amazing things with them...... but  when you spray your final clear coat, just remember that it will alter your shading ..... so you usually must go a little heavier with pastels so it doesn't completely disappear .....
